This is a nice playing example of a 1960s Martin Style 0 ukulele, the company's most basic model. Typical distinguishing features of this era are the longer headstock with a small Martin decal and tuners and rounded plastic buttons and a short 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 ukuleles ever manufactured. This one has some noticeable strum wear to the top around the fingerboard area and light general wear overall with some checking, dings and dents. There are no cracks or visible repairs and it remains a fine player with plenty of volume, punchy but still sweet. Excellent - Condition.
