Saw this one on eBay. I've seen lots of old Martins with cracks, splits, holes, but never one which was repaired with what looks like a sheet of fiberglass cloth and resin. Now that's a different approach :confused:

Vintage Martin for the price of a cheap Kala. What's not to like? ;)

The owner wanted to make it into a Flight travel ukulele

Yes, when the auction closes, and the buyer (not me) paddles off in it.

You know, I wondered about that. If you bid on it, this thread could potentially drive the price up.

But then I thought maybe you did bid on it but were desperate for someone to outbid you. :p
