C. F. Martin Style 1-C Model Concert Ukulele (1950s), made in Nazareth, PA, natural lacquer finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, original chipboard case.

This is a great-playing example of one of the most desired vintage ukuleles, an older Martin Concert uke! The concert-size ukulele is bigger than the soprano but smaller and more "uke-like" in feel and sound than the tenor. The larger body and longer neck give a deeper, richer tone. And the neck length has more room for advanced modern uke playing techniques.

Martin ukuleles can be hard to date, specifically. This Style 1-C dates to the 1950s, judging from its combination of features and the fact that it’s housed in its original chipboard case. 

Overall length: 23 1/2 in. (59.7 cm.)
Lower Bout: 7 3/4 in. (19.7 cm.) 
Body Depth: 2 3/4 in. (7 cm.)
Scale length: 15 in. (381 mm.)
Nut Width: 1 3/8 in. (35 mm.)

This uke is in very good original condition, with some age appropriate minor finish wear and checking, small dings, and scratches. One minor hairline was professionally sealed on the back. The uke plays and sounds excellent, complete in the rough original but fully functional chipboard case. These do not stay in stock long. Grab it today!
