    Default FS-Martin Style 3 Mahogany c.60's

    Very Good Condition Martin Style 3 soprano. Early 1960's original case and hangtag. A few spots of rash on the back that is not very visible and one little smile on the back of the headstock below the tuners. Slight chip in bridge at the 1st string. No cracks or repairs. It is one of the best looking style 3 that I've seen around.

    Yes it is good looking but how does it sound? Is it one of the best sounding style threes?

    Sorry, I'm not a very good marketing person...to me the sound is exactly what I look for in a Martin ukulele. This one has been my favorite for sure. I have a 60's Style 1 that may be a little louder but not as refined as the style 3.

    Am I reading that correctly, the original paperwork says the price when new in the early 60s was $30.00? That would have been about $255.00 back then, adjusted for inflation. I guess that would have been a substantial sum for a musician back then.

    The 412 refers to a shotgun Martin sold long ago for $30.00. Somewhere, there is a gun case, and in it is a tag for a "Style 3."

    What a beauty.
    When did Martin stop installing the fretboard center stripe?
    I was surprised that isn't on this one.
