C.1925 Martin Style 3K Soprano Ukulele

No Serial number. Suffice to say, we simply cannot imagine ever finding a finer Style 3K than this particular instrument. It is far and away the most perfectly preserved bar-fret era Martin that we have ever come across, and is essentially unplayed. Highly figured Koa, no repairs or repair needs, and it is accompanied by its original rear-entry case. The only ukulele Martin ever produced that would out-value this extraordinary 3K is a 5K - and it would need to be a good one to do it.

Figured Koa body with multi-layered purflings and rosette, ivoroid bindings and body ornament; ebony fingerboard with white lines inlaid down its center and pearl diamond inlays at frets 5, 7, and 9. Mahogany neck without peghead ornament, patent friction tuning pegs. Koa bridge, original nut and saddle.

Collectable ukuleles really don't get much more exciting than this.

With original case, as well as a modern hardshell.
