Martin Style 2 Soprano Ukulele, 1940s

Martin Style 2 Soprano Ukulele, 1940s

Appearing in catalogs from 1919 to 1965, the Martin Style 2 Soprano, tenor and concert ukuleles were built with Mahogany for the body and neck, with Brazilian Rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge. Here we’re looking at a Martin Style 2 Soprano Ukulele built during the 1940’s. Martin ukes tended to not have serial numbers, so dating can be imprecise. This example is in remarkably good, clean condition with light wear, mostly from strumming. It’s one of the best preserved we have seen from this era. It plays well, and has the warm open tone that a Mahogany top provides.

⚌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.

Twisted Wood Pioneer Soprano Ukulele PI-100S

Twisted Wood Pioneer Soprano Ukulele PI-100S

The Twisted Wood Pioneer soprano ukulele body is built with Laminate Sapele. Sapele, formally Entandrophragma Cylindricum, is of the same family as Mahogany (Meliaceae) and is largely found in tropical African countries, particularly in the Congo. This wood has become more commonly used for musical instruments and is often found on Taylor guitars, among others. In the form of a Laminate, the material is considerably stabler than as Solid wood, with good resistance to cracking under stress from changing humidity and temperature conditions.

Twisted Wood Koa Concert Ukulele KO-1000C

Here we have a Twisted Wood Koa Concert Ukulele. Built using solid Hawaiian Koa for the top, back and sides, the neck is Mahogany with Ebony used for the fingerboard and bridge. In a departure from traditional Ukulele construction, a pin-style bridge as found on steel string guitars is used. This type of bridge is much easier to restring than the tie-block type found on traditional Ukes, and on Classical and Flamenco nylon string guitars.
