C. F. Martin Style 1-C Model Concert Ukulele (1950s), made in Nazareth, PA, natural lacquer finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, original Geib “Economo” medallioned 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 a Geib “Economo“ case. It’s in very good to excellent condition, with just a little light playwear and great sound.

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 to excellent original condition, with some minor finish wear in the playing area, small dings, and scratches. One minor binding repair was done on the treble side of the waist. The uke plays and sounds excellent, complete in the original Geib “Economo” chipboard case.

Very Good Plus (VG+) to Excellent (E) Condition
