View Full Version : Selling my 5K Martin

33139I have decided to let this go. I find myself playing my tenor ukes more, and find the soprano size too small. This ukulele is in very nice condition. It was given to me as a present in 2007. These 5K ukes retail for betwee 4 and 5K on the market. I am willing to let this one go for $2,600.00. Case included (nice Martin case). I'm going to try and include some photos. Please, only serious inquiries. I will pay for shipping and insurance on the ukulele within the US and Hawaii. Feel free to PM for more details and info. Don't let this one get away!!!! Make offer, all offers considered. Howie

If you can wait a year for me to pay off my current crop, I'll gladly buy it. :)

So when it was given to you in 2007, was it also built in 2007?

03-06-2012, 05:47 PM
I have no idea when it was built, I imagine 2006 or 2007 .

03-07-2012, 01:17 AM
Howie, could you introduce me to the person who gave it to you? :)

03-07-2012, 02:36 AM
My wife gave it to me.

this is the newer model and not a vintage I believe...

06-27-2014, 02:44 AM
This is a newer model 5K

I have no idea when it was built, I imagine 2006 or 2007 .

Howie, doesn't it say the year and date inside the sound hole on the neck attachment block? It's worth looking because Martin reintroduced these around the time yours may have been built. If so, yours might be one of the first of the New Ones, enhancing its value.

Coolkayaker1...................................... ..No date and year stamp, just a serial number. My wife bought this for be back in 2007.

Why do you call it a replica? Martin, the original manufacturer made it so it can't get any more genuine than that.

06-27-2014, 07:04 PM
My 5K Martin (replica) back on the market for sale.......................New asking price $2,800.00 which includes shipping within USA. Thanks..............Howie

The first post in this thread still lists your asking price as $3,400. It's possible that people see that and don't realize that you've lowered the price. It might help to edit the first post to reflect the current asking price. Good luck with your sale!

I agree Replica is a bad description.Does Ferrari make replicas?

06-27-2014, 10:39 PM
Hi Howie1947,
Any chance of a sound sample?

06-28-2014, 03:22 AM
Let me say that this is one of the "newer" 5K models from Martin and not a "Replica" Hope this clears the confusion.

Here's an interesting video from Chris Martin, discussing the new 5K. He does say that they were re-creating something that they hadn't produced in 10 to 20 years, so maybe that's where the replica thing comes from. It's actually sort of amusing, informative, and interesting all at once. http://youtu.be/zrk_n6Nr5lI
