C. F. Martin Style 0 Model Soprano Ukulele (1960's), made in Nazareth, PA, natural mahogany finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, black chipboard case.

A very nice example of a 1960s Martin Style 0 ukulele. Typical features of the era are the longer headstock with the small Martin decal and the round-button tuners with no extended shaft. Although these little ukes were Martin's least expensive instrument, they are always built to the company's usual standard and are still considered among the best sounding and playing ukuleles ever manufactured. This one is a very good player and has a very nicely rounded sound for this time period.
Overall length is 21 in. (53.3 cm.), 6 1/2 in. (16.5 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 5/8 in. (346 mm.). Width of nut is 1 7/16 in. (36 mm.).

A very clean example; a couple of tiny repaired side cracks (hard to see) and the lightest of finish wear. There is the very faint outline of an old sticker on the back, but this uke appears very little used. Great sound and a good player. Excellent Condition.
