C. F. Martin Style 1-T Tenor Ukulele , c. 1938

C. F. Martin  Style 1-T Tenor Ukulele ,  c. 1938

C. F. Martin Style 1-T Model Tenor Ukulele, c. 1938, made in Nazareth, PA, natural lacquer finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, original black soft shell case.

A very nice example of one of our most requested instruments: the Martin Tenor Ukulele. The much larger body and longer neck give not only a deeper, richer tone but the fingerboard has a lot more room for advanced modern uke stylings! A really nice-sounding uke.
Overall length is 25 9/16 in. (64.9 cm.), 9 in. (22.9 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 2 7/8 in. (7.3 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 17 in. (432 mm.). Width of nut is 1 5/16 in. (33 mm.).

Very clean overall. Not much finish wear on top; some light scratches and dings to back. The top center seam behind the bridge has be re-glued, and there are 3 closed back cracks near the heelblock, all well-repaired. A very nice-playing and sounding uke, with the original case. Excellent Condition.
