For Sale: Vintage Martin Style 1C Concert Ukulele. I estimate this ukulele to be from the late forties to early fifties. It is in very good used condition, with normal wear from use. It has one professionally cleated and glued 4" back crack and a possible 1" crack on the back at the inside edge of the kerfed lining at the treble side of the lower bout. The finish is original with some crazing.

The instrument is attractive dark mahogany with the earlier, browner tortoise plastic binding and a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. It has T-frets and ebony nut and saddle. The bridge and string slots are perfect. It has the original Grover Champion tuners with black buttons This hard-to-find concert size Martin is made a bit more special by having the "Made In USA" stamp on the back of the peghead, indicating it was for export. It comes with an excellent Harptone hard shell case, which are no longer available.

It plays beautifully and roars when strummed. I only play tenor-scale ukulele now, so this one needs to go where it will be loved.

$1100 or best offer plus $45.16 USPS insured standard shipping.
