    And here's my 1925 Martin 0 - i scored it on eBay back in 2012 & sent it to Jake Wildwood to dress it up w/a bridge repair & a few other things. LOVE these little ukes!

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Report on This Martin Style 0 now refubed ..it has still a few scuffs and dings that show it has been around for a about 60 years the cracks are now sound with a couple of cleats installed...I fitted a new set of flourocarbon strings tuned it up to C and gave it a test flight.. The new strings seem to have given it new life, It sounds great almost identical to one of mine...I'll try and do a sound comparison later.
