    Default NUD: Martin OX Bamboo

    With all the talk about the Martin OX being discontinued, and how much people like this model, I felt compelled to get one. Although it was offered as "used," it's in perfect condition. I'm surprised they didn't use the same gold company logo on the headstock.

    Congrats on your bamboo! I think it looks nice in an understated way with that black decal logo.

    Congrats! Looks nice.

    Will we be so privileged as to hear a sound sample from you in the future?

    Here's a better sound sample than I could give.

    Nice! I have the OXK and think the Martin HPL ukes are wonderful.

    While I prefer the soulfulness of wood, I think my OXK is impressive in sound, action, and imperviousness.
    Wish it didn't weigh so much.

    I noted a few sold on Ebay for screamin' deals - they must be closing them out.

    I kind of like the black Martin logo nice and clear.

    Right. The gold color would be lost in the bamboo color.
