I was wondering what kind of ukulele Joe Brown is playing in this video. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=386UwJer77o) The part where he plays it starts at about 1:50. I just really like the sound of it and was wondering what the closest sound to that I could find might be.

I think that's a vintage Martin. Looks like a style 0 or 1. I know he plays a Martin in that tribute for George Harrison concert. You probably have to actually get a vintage Martin to have that exact sound. Kiwaya mahogany ukes are supposed to sound like Martins, but my KTS-7 (Martin style 3 copy) sounds absolutely nothing like the style 1 I once owned. Those vintage ukes definitely have a different sound.
