    Counter, don't take offense at Bill's comment. He gets his knickers in a wad all the time. Seems he's always riding with a burr under his saddle.

    I champion the research and development they've put in to this all carbon fiber ukulele. From the video, it sounds pretty good too. But, am I the only one that thinks the very small headstock looks...

    I'm seriously thinking about selling all non-soprano Martins I have in my collection at some point. My hands just don't work as well as they used to and the tenors just get no play time. I also have...

    Absolutely if I played tenor's this would be sold. It's a fantastic price on a now discontinued Martin. Someone should jump on this for sure.

    Jodie -

    Your Konter sounds fantastic and as you say, my Konter is as close to the vintage Martin sound as I've encountered from a new ukulele. They are light as a feather, built fantastically and...

    It is made in Nazareth and it is kerfed. In my opinion, this is the closest Martin has gotten to the way they made the vintage Style 1's . Also, they sound vintage as well.

    I think Martin needed to differentiate their ukulele lineup and the OX in all builds was just to close to the all-wood S1 in price point. I think in retail there was about $80 difference and most...

    True Martin fans know the first thing you do when looking at or buying a Martin branded instrument is stick your nose in the sound hole and have a good sniff. It's a well documented phenomenon.

    Jerry, it's reminiscent of old Martin Guitars that were built with hide glue. But, it also has to do with the Koa I believe because some of my 3K's smell the same way but not quite a strong.
