This lovely Martin 1K soprano ukulele was made around 1927 and it's in excellent structural condition. It was a Brazilian rosewood fretboard with its original bar stock frets. The top, back and sides are made from solid koa that has a nice straight grain pattern. The bridge is koa and the nut and saddle are ebony. This was made before Martin started using decals but the back of the headstock does have the classic "C.F. Martin & Co,-Nazareth, PA" stamp. The original finish had some French polish added a couple of years ago by our own Frank Ford and it’s starting to develop a nice patine. At the same, the previous owner had us replace the original friction pegs with a new set of Gotoh geared tuning machines. This is a lovely sounding ukulele with the clear, ringing tone that nearly a century of being played can give you. And with the addition of the new pegs, it’s a breeze to tune so you can spend more playing than fiddling with the pegs. Includes a recent vintage gig bag.
