1920s Martin 2K Soprano Ukulele

Photo for Ad 126811

Here's a sweet almost 100-year old soprano ukulele from the venerable C.F. Martin and Co. Martin has long been recognized as the leading maker of ukuleles, and this soprano is an example of why that is so. Impressively figured koa is the main attraction here, triple bound in contrasting ivoroid. This instrument is completely original, including the Brazilian rosewood bridge and fretboard with the small dot position markers and the original ivoroid buttoned friction tuners. The condition is excellent with only one scratch near the wood inlaid rosette, and a short back crack, repaired long ago. These little sweethearts are quickly disappearing from the musical landscape, so here’s your opportunity to obtain a lovely example.

Photo for Ad 126763

1950 Martin Tenor in excellent, all original condition. There are some scratches here and there but nothing from what you would expect from an instrument of this vintage. 100% crack free, no prior repairs and none needed. The action and setup are very comfortable. The tone of this instrument is very beautiful and exemplifies why most quality vintage instruments sound superior to new ones. There is a lovely warmth and seasoned quality but it still retains great clarity and shimmer. Comes with a vintage chipboard case that we are not sure is original to the instrument.

Gibson Uke-3 Soprano Ukulele, C. 1928

Photo for Ad 125912

Gibson Uke-3 Model Soprano Ukulele, c. 1928, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, natural mahogany finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, chipboard case.

This is a very nice example of the 1920s Gibson "Uke-3," the company's top-of-the-line ukulele in the 1920s. This model was the fanciest ukulele Gibson offered as a stock model, although the company would occasionally build hand-painted custom ukes on special order. The Gibson ukulele line wasn't even launched until 1926, quite late in the game.

The company likely missed thousands of potential sales by sitting out the uke craze of the early 1920s, allowing Martin to dominate the higher end of the market. By the time Gibson's ukuleles were on dealers' walls, the craze had started to wane, and these Kalamazoo-made ukes are now much rarer than the equivalent Martins.

The Uke-3 sold originally for $20, but is somewhat stylistically similar to the more expensive Martin Style 3, even perhaps a bit flashier. It features all-mahogany construction with a very dark finish, a triple-bound body, colored wood sound hole ring, and a bound, pearl diamond-inlaid rosewood fingerboard. The nut and saddle are bone and the headstock has silver paint stencil "The Gibson" logo above pearl diamond inlay and is fitted with Grover "Simplex" friction tuners. This last piece of hardware dates this example to the later '20s, when these tuning pegs first became available. Gibson ukuleles can be somewhat inconsistent but this one is very lightly built, making for a super nice-sounding uke and an awfully cute piece of 1920s Gibsonia!

Overall length is 20 3/8 in. (51.8 cm.), 6 3/8 in. (16.2 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 2 1/4 in. (5.7 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 13 3/4 in. (349 mm.). Width of nut is 1 7/16 in. (36 mm.).

This uke is very clean overall with only minimal finish wear and does not appear to have ever been played much. There is one repaired grain crack to the top on the treble side; solid but not finished over or touched up, so plainly visible. There is one smaller repaired grain crack to the back as well, and a tiny rim crack on the bass side waist. None of these affect the instrument in any functional way and this is an excellent-playing uke with a very fine sound -- loud and punchy, but still sweet. It is currently housed in a 1950s-'60s grey chipboard case. Excellent - Condition.

C. F. Martin Style 1 Soprano Ukulele, C. 1920

Photo for Ad 125862

C. F. Martin Style 1 Model Soprano Ukulele, c. 1920, made in Nazareth, PA, dark mahogany finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, black gig bag case.

This is a well-worn but great-sounding example of an very early 1920s Martin Style 1 ukulele. Although by Martin standards these were a fairly inexpensive instrument (originally retailing in the $12 range), they are built to the highest Martin 1920s standard and are considered easily amongst the best-sounding ukuleles ever manufactured.

The Style 1 is a simple design with a natural mahogany finish and no ornament beyond 3-ply wooden top binding and sound hole ring and three dots on the fingerboard. This early model retains the maple nut and saddle of the first Martin ukes, replaced not long after with ebony.

The tuners are modern metal friction pegs with black plastic buttons, an often-seen substitution for the wooden violin-style pegs Martin provided at the time. Many early 1920s Martin ukes have since been fitted with similar pegs, as for most folks they are generally much easier to tune. This uke plays very well and has a lovely tone.

Overall length is 20 3/4 in. (52.7 cm.), 6 1/4 in. (15.9 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 2 5/16 in. (5.9 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 13 5/8 in. (346 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/8 in. (35 mm.).

Long ago someone must have loved this ukulele, and played it...a LOT! It remains all original except for the tuning pegs as noted above but shows quite a bit of wear, most notably to the face where some of the very thin varnish finish has been simply strummed away up near the fingerboard. The rest of the finish shows general wear as well, including to the back edges, a noticeable scrape behind the bridge, and an odd patched brushed-in spot on the upper side.

There is a small repair to the back lower edge where it took a bit of a hit long ago and several sealed grain cracks to the back. Despite this catalog of woe the uke plays perfectly and sounds simply swell, as they would have said when it was new. A lovely player's instrument still and a testament to just how well C.F. Martin & Co. built everything they put their name on. Very Good + Condition.

1956-1962 Martin Style 0 Soprano Ukulele

Photo for Ad 125746

(Serial No. none) Excellent condition showing some very minor playing wear. Martin ukuleles do not have serial numbers so they must be dated by features. Hex peghead bushings were first used in 1956. The Martin stamp inside the uke does not include the words "Made in USA", which were added in 1962. Style 0 ukuleles have an all mahogany body and neck, rosewood fretboard with dot inlay, no body binding and a Martin decal in the headstock. Frets are good, neck set is good. Tuners are original, as is the ebony nut. No cracks or repairs are evident. Plays very easily with good action and has a sound much bigger than the size would lead you to think. Comes with a softshell case. ...USD $750

1955 Gibson Style 1 Soprano Ukulele

Photo for Ad 125714

(FON S1306 6) Excellent condition showing some very minor playing wear. The S in the order number on the inside dates it to 1955. Style 1 ukuleles have an all mahogany body and neck, rosewood fretboard with dot inlay, single soundhole ring, no body binding and a silkscreened Gibson logo in the headstock. Frets are good, neck set is good. Hardware and finish are original. No cracks or repairs are evident. Plays very easily with good action and has a sound much bigger than the size would lead you to think. Comes with a newer foam hard case. ...USD $750

1953 Martin Style 1 Soprano Ukulele

Photo for Ad 125709

In beautiful original condition, this little instrument sings out with a sweet, woody, and seasoned voice that you can only get from fine vintage instruments. The setup/action is low and comfortable and it plays wonderfully. It's very hard to put down! No previous repairs and none needed. Comes with it's original chipboard case.

C. F. Martin Style 0 Soprano Ukulele, C. 1924

Photo for Ad 125322

C. F. Martin Style 0 Model Soprano Ukulele, c. 1924, made in Nazareth, PA, natural varnish finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, black gig bag case.

This is a nice-playing example of an early Martin Style 0 ukulele, with the wooden violin-style pegs used into the mid-'20s. Although these were C. F. Martin's least expensive instrument ever (originally retailing in the $10-12.00 range), they are built to the high standards of all Martin instruments.

Martin ukuleles, especially the early models, are still considered amongst the best-sounding and playing ukuleles ever manufactured. The all-mahogany Style 0 is the simplest design, and while devoid of ornament still has as beautiful a tone as most any Martin uke.

Overall length is 20 3/4 in. (52.7 cm.), 6 3/8 in. (16.2 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 2 1/4 in. (5.7 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 13 5/8 in. (346 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/8 in. (35 mm.).

This uke is in very good playing condition with some typical wear and old repairs. There is a decent-sized impact crack to the back, well-sealed with light touch-up but still plainly visible. The top has one spot of fairly deep strumwear into the wood on the upper treble bout. Other than this, the finish shows dings and scuffing overall but no other major wear. The uke plays well with a splendid well-rounded sound typical of early examples. Very Good + Condition.

Maccaferri T.V. Pal Soprano Ukulele, Circa 1951

Photo for Ad 125011

Maccaferri T.V. Pal Model Soprano Ukulele, c. 1951, made in New York, NY, swirl plastic finish, Dow Styron plastic, original box case.

Overall length is 21 in. (53.3 cm.), 6 3/8 in. (16.2 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 2 1/4 in. (5.7 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 13 1/2 in. (343 mm.). Width of nut is 1 7/16 in. (36 mm.).

All original and hardly used, complete with the original box, a Bobby Breen method book, and felt pick. The box has some crush marks, mostly on the sides, but is still intact, with a couple of generations of scotch tape on the flaps. It features some great graphics, and while the TV Pal was not the highest grade of Maccaferri Dow Styron instrument, it is still very cool and relatively functional! Excellent + Condition.

$175.00

Regal Soprano Ukulele, C. 1930

Photo for Ad 124895

Regal Soprano Ukulele, c. 1930, made in Chicago, natural lacquer finish, mahogany body, poplar neck with rosewood fingerboard.

Overall length is 20 7/8 in. (53 cm.), 6 3/4 in. (17.1 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 2 3/8 in. (6 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 13 1/4 in. (337 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.).

This unassuming but solidly made "genuine mahogany" uke is typical of late 1920s and early '30s Regal product, with the company's signature carved ledge around the long headstock edge and "crown" Regal decal on the face.

There is some light playwear here and there and dings to the top but no damage or repair except a couple of small chips out of the nut. This is a plainer-looking but better-sounding instrument than the plethora of birch-bodied decorated ukes of this era, with a nicely mellowed tone and plenty of volume. Excellent - Condition.

$325.00

Gibson Ub-1 Banjo Ukulele, C. 1928

Photo for Ad 124759

Gibson UB-1 Model Banjo Ukulele, c. 1928, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, shaded maple finish, maple neck and rim, ebonized fingerboard, black chipboard case.

This model is one of our perennial favorites! Although the diminutive UB-1 (retailing originally at $10.00!) was the least expensive instrument Gibson ever offered, these are still very well-made and have a unique tone all to themselves--rather like the sound is already coming off of a 78 RPM disc! The UB-1 is perfect for bringing closet flappers out of the woodwork. Fun, extremely playable, and awful darn cute.

Overall length is 19 3/4 in. (50.2 cm.), 6 in. (15.2 cm.) diameter head, and 3 in. (7.6 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 12 1/2 in. (318 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.). This little UB has seen some use but plays and sounds very well. There is an old heel repair by the lower lag bolt that is solid but noticeable; it's unusual for this instrument but hasn't hurt function anyway. All else is complete and original except two of the screws holding on the resonator plate; the plating on the tailpiece has a lot of corrosion but most of the rest is relatively clean. There is some general finish wear, the only large spot is some thumbwear into the wood a bit on the back of the neck. A fine player with the patented "78RPM" sound in spades, housed in a period slightly oversized case that looks like it would also hold a very large revolver. Very Good + Condition.
