C. F. Martin Style 0 Soprano Ukulele , c. 1924

C. F. Martin Style 0 Model Soprano Ukulele, c. 1924, made in Nazareth, PA, natural varnish finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, original black chipboard case.

An extremely nice example of an early-1920's wooden-peg Martin Style 0 ukulele. Although these were C. F. Martin's least expensive instrument (originally retailing in the $10-12.00 range) they are built to the highest standard and are still considered amongst the best sounding and playing ukuleles ever manufactured. The Style 0 is simple and devoid of ornament but has as beautiful a tone as most any Martin uke.
 
Overall length is 20 3/4 in. (52.7 cm.), 6 3/8 in. (16.2 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 2 1/4 in. (5.7 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 13 5/8 in. (346 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/8 in. (35 mm.). Super clean and all original; some very small scuffs and scratches to the finish but very little play wear. There is one grain crack to the back so cleanly sealed it's difficult to see; the back finish has seen a light polish-out. A really fine playing and sounding uke, a superb instrument. Overall Excellent Condition.
