Just saw this eBay auction and was surprised to see shark tuners on a Martin. As far as I know only Harmony put those on their ukes, right?

You're right on that...somebody swapped them out somewhere along the line...damn shame!

A couple years came with them... I have a bergstrom martin with shark tooth tuners as well and have seen others..

My soprano has the shark fin tuners...although I thought it was built in the 50's.
Can't tell you if this is the original configuration. Perhaps a UU Martin expert can verify ifn they were so equipped for a time?
Thanks a bunch.

What a waste of good Harmony tuners. :)
