    Double Ack - there's a 17 fret style 1 up now too.

    As was mentioned to me today, these are what the 100th anniversary Martin's should be.

    I almost never plug it in, it's my office uke/travel uke, so I'm usually happy that it's so quiet.

    If you like satin, don't bother with the deluxe. I still have a satin, and had a gorgeous pro-classic. I could never bond with it because it was too shiny.

    I've had a few other people look at it and their consensus is that it is a Martin 1K of some sort, likely employee built. It has all of the features of one made between 1927 and 1934.

    We haven't been there in a few years, so we're thinking that will make a good trip regardless. So we'll see if we can set up a meeting with someone there to see what we can learn.
