One of the finest acoustic ukuleles known to mankind, the Martin Concert is larger than the standard soprano – measuring approximately 25 5/8” in total length, 7 ¾” in body width and 10 7/8” in body length. The top and back are bordered in tortoise shell celluloid, the top has an additional line of white purfling around it. This ukulele has the “C F Martin & Co., Est. 1833” headstock decal which is a logo Martin Company transitioned to in the early ‘30s; it has “machine” friction tuners, each of which has a metal sheath and a black plastic button with a screw at the end to tighten it. It has the standard Martin center point headstock design for a ukulele and the entire instrument, save for the fingerboard, bridge, nut and saddle are made of solid and genuine mahogany. The nut and saddle are ebony and the fingerboard and bridge are Brazilian rosewood. The instrument shows minor and very tiny scratches and scuffs, including two on the back of the neck. The small signs that it was in fact held from time to time is entirely expected and exceedingly light. This is one of the best preserved Martin Concert Ukes as we have had the pleasure to discover and offer for resale. There are ukes, and there are ukes, but this one is exceptional.
