Martin Ukuleles have a very distict warm sound to them. The older ones are worth A LOT of money.

Martin makes a really solid intrument. I've never played one of their ukuleles before, but their guitars are top notch.

WAH!?!

They're probably only the world's most famous and sought after acoustic instrument maker. Is it a vintage one? The mahagany ones of early last century are very valuable.

Well, im going to have a pretty good guess..

It's a nice uke, but I would say less than $1000. I'm pretty sure it's a style 0 which would make it about $500 in mint condition. Still, wish my grandparents gave me one.

i think its a great uke... but i wouldn't sell it.
first: good ukulele!
second: something to remember you olds, olds by... (olds = parents) doesn't sound nice when i say that but its true!.. i made my parents by me something i can remember them by... and my grandparents, yes its lame but i like it ^^

if somebody hasn't already answered your question about that being Aldrine... yes it is.

I didn't see somebody answer it... But im tired.

Is it a concert? 700$ to 900$ for a crack free concert. Looks like its had some work done though. New tuners and nut? I don't think Martin ever used a white nut material. The headstock decal is post mid thirties and looks a lot like a 50's style. Hold it up to a strong light and search for any little cracks buyers will want to know. Get some good pics and go to Uke Yak at FMBB. The most knowledgable Martin people are there and can tell you more than I can. Never sell a uke that has mojo like that. It's a special uke made even more special by family.Lucky dude!:cool::cool:
