$9,000.00

SOLD. Call us for options.

This vintage 1930s Martin 5k Soprano Ukulele is very rare and is 100% original. This Hawaiian Koa 5k model is a superb example of Martin's great uke craftsmanship, particularly with its extensive abalone inlay and ivoroid binding, found on the front and back body. The neck is ivoroid bound as well. Martin started crafting ukes in about 1916. The 5k uke was introduced in 1922 and ceased original production in 1942. This particular beauty also comes with its original hard case. Call for an in-hand description.
