    Risa electric ukes

    I see that Jake Wildwood has a couple of Risa electric ukes posted on his site. They are quite attractive and reputed to be well made instruments for those who want to rock out and like the steel string. I recall Baz gave them a favorable review. You don't see them too often and I have not heard...

    FS: Vintage Martin Ukulele

    I believe this instrument is likely from somewhere in the 50s. It is in beautiful shape- no cracks or repairs that I can see. It sounds amazing with plenty of that classic Martin soprano zing and volume to spare. The tuners are new. It currently is strung with Martin Premium Polygut strings...

    Looking at pics of various instruments, I have seen some variation in color of vintage Martins. Most are a medium brown color, with many looking to have a natural finish. There are some that seem to be much darker, like the color of dark chocolate. Did Martin make instruments with different...

    Weymann ukulele

    FYI- I thought I would point this one out. Some months back I bought this Weymann. It is a wonderful instrument made in 1920 in the Martin style. There are a couple of details that are slightly different, otherwise you would easily think it is a Martin build from the looks and playing. It has a...

    Martin OX strings

    I am curious if anyone has found that they prefer any different strings on their Martin OX/OXK or if the standard Martins seem to be the best overall choice. Certainly Martins seem to be a good all around string with many instruments

    1920 Weymann uke

    I recently came across this 1920 Weymann soprano uke. You don't find these around too often. These were made in Philadelphia. It is a very nice quality well built instrument of lovely mahogany. It is pretty much the same dimensions as a Martin, but with some subtle differences. It is in lovely...

    For any Beatle fans!

    A question of ethics

    A short while back I sold a vintage instrument which had an excellently repaired crack. I was fully honest in the sale, disclosing the repair to the buyer. Now I see the instrument listed on ebay for sale and the seller says "Beautiful instrument with no cracks". On one hand I suppose it is...
