    Martin wreck

    So sad to see a vintage Martin in such bad shape. If this one lived its whole like in CA, it surely never met a humidifier. Looking at the back, I'm trying to figure out what happened there, looks...

    I wonder if the koa/flame patterns on the HPL top/back will be exactly the same on on each one, per the picture, or vary slightly? The stock Martin photos look good, but I've been fooled before :( ...

    Never had an OXK, but they sounded great on my OX bamboo, which is basically the same thing. Great all around string IMO. The only thing is, the C string is fatter than many other sets. Works fine...

    I'd consider the usual Grover 9w tuners on the C1K and T1K ukes as budget tuners, at about $15.00/set retail. The Graphtech Ratio geared tuners are closer to $30.00/set retail.

    They did make a C1 uke in mahogany, it was called the C1 Uke Special. There is one on eBay now, but all the examples I've seen there (about a dozen over the last year or 2) are being sold in Japan,...

    A solid cedar top Kala KA-ATP-CTG-CE, with pickup and cutaway might be worth consideration. Smooth mellow tone right out of the box, and highly regarded here. I got a used non-electric version for...

    To me, it sounds like they were made in Japan. Nice find, hope you fix it up. If no cracks, you may just need a new tuner. If it was mine, I'd first get a $17.00 set of Ping friction tuners (link...

    Yes, to instantly drop tuning on the string. Usually I only see one of these on a bass for drop-D. A set of four would cost $280.00, an expensive mod!

    If the problem comes back, you could add a very thin washer between the tuner and hack of headstock to gain more grip, which seems less invasive than cutting a bit off of the screw end.

    No, my gold label sop had smaller tuners, with smaller screw heads. I like the look of the UPTs I've seen on recent Kamakas: black, with white oval buttons.

    Wow, nice find Tracie! Looks like a beauty. Not sure on the tuners, but my gold label soprano had tiny post holes, UPTs would have needed reaming.
