This is the nicest Martin tenor of this vintage I personally have seen. There are no repairs or major dings. The finish is still beautiful. The sound is what you would expect from a 65-70 year old instrument that has been well treated throughout its life. A bargain at $1250.

I'd love to adopt this wonderful vintage Martin tenor from you...

However, lack of funds keeps me as a humble spectator.

Someone is going to get a true piece of history here.

Best of luck with the sale! :)

Unfortunately, that's a bit too technical for me. To me, the uke sounds like the one used by IZ in Over the Rainbow.

I recently bought an ukulele from Randy. It was shipped quickly, delivered as described, and very well packed. Buy with confidence!

If I didn't have a Kinnard Mahogany Tenor which is AMAZING ... I would so be all over this.

I have this same model, which to my knowledge ranges from late 40's to early 50's. I found this old HMS post:

Mine sounds just like this one, except I don't play nearly as well as Corey. The action on mine is very low, and the intonation is very good all the way up the neck. It sounds great strummed or finger picked.
