Not looking to break the bank here, but I've always wanted a vintage soprano. I have a soprano now and it's an absolute dud, so I'm looking for something I can actually play. Let me know what you've got, sound samples would be a bonus for sure. Thanks

Get a Martin 0 or 1. You won't regret it.

Yes , get a Martin Soprano. You can find them on Ebay for around $ 300 . A great uke is the Martin SO , hard to find but they seem to go for around 200 and in my opinion way underpriced ( I have two ). The OXK (new) can be had now for under 200 on Amazon , an excellent seemingly bulletproof soprano.
One of the best features of Martin sopranos is the nut width , seems perfect for me.
I don't think you can go wrong with any Martin soprano.

For other options in addition to those above, watch Antebellum Instruments listing page. I've bought several instruments from him and they've all been great. http://antebelluminstruments.blogspot.com/p/store-inventory.html

You want a 60s or older Martin. Underwhelmed by the new ones including the SO.
While not a vintage I have one of the first Bushman Jennys. You can have it for $150 shipped CONUS.
I swapped out the Schaller Tunners (too heavy) but will reinstall them if you wish.

Really only looking for vintage as of now. Thanks for the offer though.

Stan- not really sure how much I'm looking to spend to be honest. Definitely not over $500 though
