Thom is an honest and kind UU'er; I know, I have dealt with him in 2013.

Wow, look at that 65 year old instrument--looks like it was made yesterday.

And, Thom, I know you dig vintage ukuleles that are near flawless: uke with a crack, break your mama's back, that kind of thing. So, I'm sure this baby is a winner.

Winner-winner-chicken dinner!

Hi pdxuke,
I am interested in buying your Martin and just sent you a pm.
I live in Moraga, Ca, and get to see some wonderful Martins at our Orinda and Berkeley Uke groups. Looking forward to having a baby of my own :-)
Thank you,
Pam

Here are three pics of the wear and tear I'm talking about: strum marks, a few scuffs on the back. No big dings or cracks:
