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


Instrument Categories: ,

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. Over its nearly 100 years, it’s had a crack repair to the back with some finish alteration, and one missing back brace from the repair. The Rosewood fingerboard shows finger wear particularly in the low positions, and the bar style frets are original.

This instrument is sold with a faux-gator, black/blue case.
