About This Listing

Martin Style 51 baritone ukulele     1967-68

The Style 51 Baritone as it was introduced in 1960. This example has the tortoiseshell-colored binding, so we know it was made before late 1967, early 1968, when Martin switched to black binding. Martin ukes didn't have serial number during this period, so I am making an educated guess as to the date it was built. The uke came to me with a neck crack that has been repaired with a veneer to the back of the headstock. The sides have several cracks that have been repaired. The body was been over sprayed but looks good. The instrument looks, plays and sounds very good. It has bumps, bruises and crazing that come with a 55 year old instrument. Total length 30 11/16", body length 14", lower bought  10", scale length  20 1/8". Original tuners are installed and work well. It is strung with D’Addario clear nylon strings. The uke comes with a new Stagg case the fits well.

Please go to CWSIR.COM to see Coldwater Stringed Instrument Repair and my shop. I have been doing repairs and restorations for more than 30 years.

I try to describe all the flaws an instrument has. This does not make for the best description of the instrument but I try use a trained eye to catch all the imperfections of an instrument. That way when you receive an instrument from Coldwater Stringed Instrument Repair there are no surprises. Please read the descriptions, view all the photos and ask any questions you have.
