❌SOLD❌ Martin OMCPA1 LH Left Handed Natural, 2012

The Martin OMCPA1 LH is a left-handed version of a cutaway, OM body design in the now-discontinued Performing Artist line.  The  designation breaks down as Orchestra Model, Cutaway Performing Artist 1 (the 1 refers to the wood and trim selection), and Left Handed. The OM or Orchestra Model body design dates to the closing days of 1929 when the great banjoist migration was taking shape as many players shifted to guitar.

⚌Reduced‼ Martin Style 2K Soprano Koa Ukulele, 1923

Here we have a Martin Style 2K Soprano Koa Ukulele built around 1923 in Nazareth, Pennsylvania; this model debuted in 1918 as the Style 2, with the 2K Koa option until 1933, and as the Style 2 until 1965. In 1923, nickel patent tuners took the place of the original wooden friction pegs, helping date this instrument; at this point Martin Ukuleles did not receive serial numbers. This Martin Style 2K Koa Soprano Ukulele is in good working order and sounds quite good, with a warm, sweet tone.
