OVERVIEW

A traditonal ukulele from a premier builder crafted of solid Hawaiian Koa.

Martin has built the world’s finest ukuleles since 1916, and tenor ukes since 1929 that have long been prized for their full-bodied voice and great volume. The C1K concert-sized model features top, back and sides crafted of solid Hawaiian koa, a wood native to Hawaii and a favorite of island players. Entire body is finished in high quality satin lacquer, and features an applied dovetail neck joint. The C1K Uke is a beautiful example of why Martin is still the name in superior quality ukuleles.

Includes gig bag.

    Comments about Martin C1K Concert Ukulele:

    I own Cordoba and Luna ukuleles, but this is in another league. The Martin strings are the best I've heard and the instrument itself is a real work of art. Not sure why they didn't do a high gloss finish like the Hawaiian makers, but it still looks amazing. The sound is wonderful and playing it just "feels" right. (rather subjective I know.) The price was good and Musician's Friend was easy to work with. I received this while they were still back ordered... not sure how, but thanks. In a couple of years I'll update this review and see how the Martin C1K lasts over time. New cars are always nice, but let's see how it ages. I'm betting it will be just like new.

        I was completely surprised when I noticed the package at my door! I ordered it around 2am on Mon. and Tues. morning it's here! Wow!!!! Then I opened it. It is a beautifully crafted Martin! It plays and sounds absolutely fantastic. The padded case seems like it will be durable, as well! Can't go wrong with this purchase!

            Wow, this is my first ever Martin purchase and I am quite impressed. I'm no expert but it sounds a lot better than my Lanikai CK-C uke. And much louder for the same effort when playing.
