Martin Style 1 Soprano Ukulele Mahogany, 1950s

Martin Style 1 Soprano Ukulele Mahogany, 1950s

The Martin Style 1 Soprano ukulele first appeared in 1917 and was built into the 1960’s, and has now been replaced by the Martin S1 ukulele. In the later part of the 1900’s and into the 1920’s and 1930’s, the ukulele and Hawaiian music (including steel guitar) were very popular, and Martin wanted part of the market. Though there were some prototypes built before WW1, Martin’s designs were not finalized until 1917 and the introduction of the Style 1 and Style 2; the Style 3 appeared in 1924.

❌SOLD❌ C F Martin Style 1 Soprano Ukulele, 1917

❌SOLD❌  C F Martin Style 1 Soprano Ukulele, 1917

Here’s something special – a century old C F Martin Style 1 Soprano ukulele, built during the uke’s first rise in popularity. Eventually, the Ukulele became so popular that Martin had to expand their production facility. The Ukulele started to gain attention in the early years of the 20th century, and C F Martin made a few examples around 1906. However, these were built more like guitars and the relatively heavy bracing did not work well. In 1916, the company launched a new version with traditionally lighter construction and these were well received.
