    Default NUD - Martin Ditson Style 2

    Here is my Oliver Ditson made by CF martin in the 1920s. These are pretty pricey to get a hold of....Mine has some cracks that have been repaired. That brought it into my price point but was probably my second most expensive acquisition after my style 3

    Nice! Received the Martin ukulele book this past Christmas, putting together the history and seeing real world samples of the work over time is great--now I have a feel and some knowledge of what I am looking at. Enjoy the playing!

    Wow, that case is beautiful!

    Interesting - a non-Martin Martin. Something like the Wurlitzer posted yesterday.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    It looks like it has a lot of character. I really like that.

    It has a ton of character...its been repaired pretty good in the back but still sounds terrific.
