Dating my martin ukulele


I’d also recommend you take a look at the above video of ukulelezaza playing four different styles of Martin (0, 1, 2, 3).

Martin Style 0 The style 0 Martin is the simplest ukulele they made.

The only bit of decoration is the simple ring around the sound hole. A Style 0 ukulele in top condition might be worth around 0.


Also, Style 1 Martins were produced in koa known as (Style 1K) as well as in mahogany (sometimes called 1M but usually just referred to as 1). A mahogany style 1 will be worth a little more than the style 0, but a 1k could be worth more than ,000 in good condition.

musicguymic has one for sale at the moment for ,200. You can recognise it immediately by the thick white binding around the body of the uke.

Martin ukuleles are probably the most sought after brand of ukulele around.

It’s many ukers’ dream to come across a vintage Martin ukulele at a car boot sale for a tenner.


The Style 2 was available in mahogany and also in koa.A mahogany version will take you into four figures, and a 2K should see you well over ,000 and closer to three if it’s in top notch condition.
