View Full Version : Early Martin finishes

I recently got the Martin Ukulele book by John King. Alot to digest there. One thing I noticed was the finish on some early ukes. Specifically, the finish I've heard referred to as horsehair, like the Model 0, on page 131, as I recall (don't have the book with me right now). I don't see the authors referring to that finish as horsehair, but only as dark. What's the story on that finish? I assume it must be somewhat rare, as I've never seen one listed for sale.
