C.F. Martin & Co created the world leading standard in ukuleles with their first production beginning in 1916. The Style 2K Soprano was first introduced in 1918. It features a top, back and sides of beautifully speckled native Hawaiian koa, and classic triple bound top binding with ivoroid outer binding. This one was built by Martin in Nazareth PA. It is a stellar example of the Martin heritage and a testament to the continued success of the manufacturer.

This beautiful original late 20’s Martin 2-K uke is in fantastic condition and will continue to stand the test of time. It is a design that Martin knew they had right from the get-go. So naturally, they haven’t changed much in all these years.
This one is in remarkable shape – structurally sound with no changes or repairs, and tuners working well. No cracks or splits. Sounds loud, bright and lively.
We think it has had a very light lacquer overspray of the body, so the woodgrain is preserved beautifully - the rich natural koa really is quite stunning.
A wonderful opportunity to own a beautifully crafted piece of Martin history.
Comes in its original form fitting case in excellent condition.
