    Oh man. I wish I could right now. These are insanely good deals. I would love to own one of those, especially that style 2!

    Dave's rescues are totally awesome. I have one, an early 40's Style 0, and although it's a beater with lots of wear & repairs, it is structurally fine, with 2.75mm action, and it plays and sounds incredible. It gives up the same sweet vintage Martin tone and bark that I hear from many of my uke heroes on Youtube, who play vintage Style 1, 2 & 3 Martins. I only wish I could buy more of Dave's rescues. He is a wizard with these things. I thought of selling it due to some hand issues, but I would really miss it, it's that good, and I've had many nice sopranos before.

    I like the 1918 M1 (sound & playing), with the wooden pegs it is not for every one (Pegheads can be installed for $75). Which I would do if I were to keep it. My keeper is a 1943 Concert with them on it.
