Martin Style 1 Solid Mahogany Tenor Ukulele ca. 1960s

Martin Style 1 Mahogany (1960s) Tenor Ukulele

I’m certainly no expert on the subject. The values are just VERY vague guesses and meant as a loose guideline only.

Mahogany Soprano, made from 1916 to 1965. Rosewood top binding, Ebony nut and saddle. Dark plastic binding in 1938, Patent Pegs in 1927.

Style 1’s are very similar to style 0. The quickest way to tell them apart is to look at the fretboard. A Style 1 ukulele will have a double dot at the seventh fret, while a Style 0 will have only one. Also, Style 1 Martins were produced in koa known as (Style 1K) as well as in mahogany (sometimes called 1M but usually just referred to as 1). Koa wood is much lighter than mahogany.

A mahogany style 1 is worth a little more than the style 0.

It has 12 frets to body and 18 frets altogether.  The ukulele has a few minor dings, but considering the age of the instrument, it is still in great condition.  It also makes no difference to the magnificent sound it produces.

Condition: Very Good

Price: £1050
