❌SOLD❌ Martin Style 1 Soprano Ukulele Mahogany, 1950s

❌SOLD❌ 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The Martin Style 1 Soprano ukulele first appeared in 1917 and was built into the 1960’s, and has now been replaced by the Martin S1 ukulele.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❌ Kawika 6 String Ukulele by David Hurd, Koa 1996

❌SOLD❌  Kawika 6 String Ukulele by David Hurd, Koa 1996

Here is something rare and wonderful – a Kawika 6 string ukulele built in Hilo, Hawaii by legendary luthier David C Hurd of Koa and Ebony.  David Hurd built ukuleles and guitar family instruments for many years in Hilo, capital of the Big Island, but retired some years ago partly due to toxicity of some of the more exotic woods used in higher end ukulele construction. His ukuleles are rarely seen on the market and are well respected for the quality of their construction and tone.

❌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.

Here’s a treat – a Washburn Soprano Ukulele, built by Lyon & Healy during the 1920s in Chicago, Illinois and in very nice condition with the original canvas trap-door case. As to Lyon and Healy, towards the end of the 1970’s, the Steinway company purchased Lyon & Healy, spinning off their other efforts to focus on building quality harps. This Washburn Soprano ukulele is built with a mixture of Mahogany for the body and bridge, Spanish Cedar for the neck, Rosewood for the fingerboard and small pieces of Ebony for the nut and saddle. The top, back and soundhole are bound with a grained ivoroid celluloid.
