This is a wonderful playing and sounding soprano uke from Martin built in Nazareth, PA around the 1950's. Built from solid mahogany with a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. Bound in a somewhat uncommon tortoid top and back. The top has white/black perfiling that makes the dark reds and browns of the binding pop. Keystone style friction tuners are in great shape and work well. Freshly set up with Aqullia Nylgut strings, it plays so easy for such a small uke. The fretwork and fingerboard are in excellent shape. It includes the original Geib case that is also in great shape, all hinges, latches and handle function perfectly.

The uke just came off my bench, it had a loose back brace and a crack on the back. The crack was on the bass side lower bout and extended up the back roughly 25mm. The repairs came out very well and I did my best to photo them. I took the opportunity while repairing these two items to check over every other glue joints and I'm happy to say it is a very solid uke. Please feel free to ask any questions and I'm happy to take more photos if needed. Thanks for looking.
