With the rise of Hawaiian music in the late 1910s, Martin began making ukuleles. The line expanded from mahogany to more elaborate Hawaiian koa models. A soprano-sized model, the 5K Uke is the ukulele equivalent of a Style 45 guitar – the top of the line. The 5K Uke is crafted with solid highly-flamed Hawaiian koa top, back and sides finished in a polished gloss, and trimmed with abalone pearl appointments. High quality, beautiful tone and ease of playability make the 5K Uke a joy to own.
This used piece is in excellent condition, and is one of the most stunning Koa Ukes we’ve seen in ages. Check out the wide flame on th sides, the tight flame on the top, the flames on the back….it’s an inferno!
Amazing sound, great playability, and incredible tone.
