I had a Martin OXK soprano for a travel ukulele when my job used to take me all over Northern New England during the Winter. It was perfect for dry conditions once I made two modifications. Constant dry Winter and Motel conditions contributed to some fret sprout. Once the sharp frets were filed down it was fine. The only other issue was that the head stock would shrink and swell going from Summer to Winter causing the friction tuners to alternately tighten and loosen. Switching to Gotoh LPTLs fixed that one.
