I think he played tenor. I think he was playing a martin brand. Someone feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

IZ played several of all sizes, but his Martin tenor seemed to be what he performed with most.

Iz also had his uke strung with a low-G if you want to duplicate his sound.

I used to think he played a soprano or concert....he was so big, he just made his tenor look that small.
