    Default 1940s Martin Style 0 crack free

    In my search for a perfect vintage martin style 0.. I ended up with two amazing ukes. Naturally one has to go.I believe this one to date to late 40s based on the klausen tuners.Crack free. Minor finish issues associated with a uke this age. What you see is what you get. I am looking to do a straight trade for a earlier martin 1930s,20s. I would consider any martin with the stamp on the back from that area. I am ok with condition issues. PM me what you have. It will come with a modern hard case. $600 if you want to buy it shipped....$615 to west coast.

    That's really nice. It seems almost perfect to me.

    Nickie thanks for the kind words!! It really is...I just ended up with two nearly identical ukes. I am more into the older stuff. I think the 40s-50s are the absolute best players of the vintage martins. This uke is louder then my kamaka concert. The olders don't sound as good but are cool to me because the represent early ukulele history. Has to be somebody out there looking to trade

    I think the question about refinishing was asked because the photo you posted looks very different from the reverb post. I wondered the same thing.
