    Sorry to see this one is up for sale. I know how much you enjoyed it when you got it. Those old Martins have an amazing sound and playability. Those are great cases as well. Good luck!

    Thanks EDW. Yes, if it weren't for this crazy pandemic, and its accompanying financial pressures, I'd keep it for sure, even if I can't play sopranos as well as a few years ago. Just looking at or holding such an old historic Martin is a special joy.

    Great uke. Great price. If I didn't already have one, I would have snapped it up even with my pandemic woes. I understand to even hold it feels like a honor sometimes. Good luck with the sale.

    Taking this one down. Having some major knee surgery next week, so will be laid up for a few weeks, and not able to mess with shipping, etc. So I'll play it some more while recovering.

    In some ways I am happy to hear you are holding on to it. Good luck with the surgery and play lots of uke when recovering. A soprano is perfect for that!

    That one looks familiar.
    I went through a knee replacement & recovery last year. I recommend the knee ice machine. Gives you hours of Cold therapy to the general area, with out the freezing cold of an ice pack. Do the exercises but don't over do them and expect slight set backs. The Martin Soprano will help. I wish I had a devise that could project song files on the ceiling. I spent a lot of time on my back with the knee raised.
    Keep on Strumming. Dave
