View Full Version : Need help and opinions on these..

I am seriously considering two ukes. One I know is, or could be valuable the other, I know nothing about. The 1st is a 1950's era Martin. The 2nd is a Favilla Bros.

Both are in need of restoration. The Martin has been compromised however by sanding the finish. Is this still valuable and restorable in your opinon?

This next is the Favilla, also 1950s and in need of restoration. I know nothing about this one.

For less than a hundred each, they would make nice projects...I'd grab them....

So far the martin is $80, and the other is still under $30
