C. F. Martin Style 0 Soprano Ukulele , c. 1940

C. F. Martin  Style 0 Soprano Ukulele ,  c. 1940

C. F. Martin Style 0 Model Soprano Ukulele, c. 1940, made in Nazareth, PA, natural lacquer finish, mahogany body and nec, original black soft shell case.

A nice example of a late prewar Style 0. Although these were Martin's least expensive instrument, they are still built to the highest standard and are still considered amongst the best sounding and playing ukuleles ever manufactured. This one is in fine condition for the era, and has a wonderful tone with plenty of volume.
Overall length is 21 in. (53.3 cm.), 6 1/2 in. (16.5 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 2 1/4 in. (5.7 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 13 3/4 in. (349 mm.). Width of nut is 1 7/16 in. (36 mm.).

Overall very clean; some checking and a little finish flaking on the back. Tuners are replaced but not drilled out, and could easily be restored to original. Includes a lovely original case in very nice condition. Excellent Condition.
