    Martin Style 0, 1920s?

    No affiliation, but saw this on GC.

    They have it listed as a 1960s, but it looks to me that it could be form the 20's? friction pegs, stamp on back of head with no decal, and what appear to be the...

    Thanks!

    I'd love to find a vintage martin concert hard case, but they seem to be very scarce.

    You wouldn't happen to have one of the same style, but for a Martin concert-sized uke would you?

    Curious about this too. From what I've read, the decal appeared in 32 and the bar frets went through 34, so I would've guessed this uke to be between those years.

    Is there another wrinkle to...

    These are what are on my 50's Martin concert. I think they work well for friction pegs, still going strong at 60 years old. Contemplating whether I should get one of these sets just in case for...

    I've always had to pay the shipping charges but who knows, maybe they changed their policy (or are just inconsistent). Even better if you don't have to pay shipping, at that point there's basically...

    Yeah, and if you have a GC near you, the risk is low. All you would be out is shipping cost to you, and you could return it in person to the store.

    The description on the listing says: "pickguard bolted to top,bolts on headstock, missing inlay."

    If you zoom in, you can kind of see it. It would be difficult to know without having it in hand,...

    I’m going to try an offer, I think.

    However, having dealt with GC in vintage instruments in the past, all the pricing is set by one of their CA stores (Hollywood, maybe?) and only they can make...

    Thanks, its helpful to have a ballpark range. With tax, this one would end up at slightly over $500 OTD, so maybe I'll wait and see if the price drops again.

    It's the second one. Based on the Walsh and King book, its a 47-56, if memory serves based upon the keystone tuners and t-frets.

    I just played it yesterday. It’s been I their humidified acoustic room the entire time, as far as I know, so there don’t appear to be any issues.

    Good points. I’ve looked at UU sales posts and eBay sold listings. They seem all over map, and it’s hard to come up with an apples to apples comparison

  15. Value of late 40s - 50s Martin style 0 soprano?

    Howdy!

    My local GC has a late 40s to late 50s Martin style 0 soprano. They’ve had it for about 2 years now, and originally had it listed @ $800. They’ve been dropping the price for the last 6...

    Well, the answer to both is probably my Martin concert. Came across it in a music store on consignment for $500. So a good price and a great sounding uke. I doubt I'll ever get rid of it.

    Yeah, that's kind of what I figured. I do play the martin a lot, and pretty vigorously. The strings still hold tune and intonate properly and seem to have good brightness. It is hard to say as I...

    String Life?

    Howdy!

    I'm fairly new to the uke, having picked it up in 2015. In that time, I've played two ukes consistently for more than a year: a Bushman soprano with Aquila (?) strings and a 1950's martin...

    Seems abnormally shiny, like its possibly been over sprayed. That may explain the discoloration around the bridge.

    Hi! Nice ukes!

    Do you have any close up pictures of the repairs to the cigarette burn and bridge slot on the '27?

    Just looked at the pics again. Its interesting how similar, yet different they look. I think the centennial's extended fret board contributes the most to the difference.

    I wonder how similarly...

    Very nice, congratulations!

    That's one thing I immediately noticed about my vintage martin concert: the rounded edges. I think it looks and feels very nice, and I'm a bit surprised they don't do...
