    I just noticed Martin dropped the 0X off their website. That leaves room for an S0 to be added ... well, I can dream anyway.

    The 0X and the S0 are very different things though - the X series are not wood (HPL) very different ukes?

    Do you mean the more recent modern S0, or a vintage Style 0?

    Are they even in the same price range? Both are common models so hopefully you can find a store like guitar center that is likely to carry both brands for direct comparison.

    That's right, I think the modern ones had more than 12 frets(?), so barely different from the current S1. I think they stopped production before I got into ukulele, so don't remember what the last ones looked like. I was thinking 12 fret like the old ones. The old finish is nice too.

    True, I was a bit off topic. Others were mentioning the S0, so I was thinking Martin needs a new entry model. Just wishful thinking on my part.

    For what it's worth, there's a nice S-0 for sale on Reverb for $360 plus shipping, and it appears the seller will entertain offers...

    Thanks all for your input. It looks like if I don't go for the Martin, I'll always be wondering what it was like.

    Regards

    Good choice. I think the Martin is easier to play and sounds better. Of course there's always the Kiwaya/Famous KTS-4. Also a good choice.
