Martin has been building the world's finest ukuleles from as early as 1916, including the smallest Soprano, the original model, to the larger Concert in 1925 and the Tenor uke in 1929. Both the concert model and tenor models have long been prized for their full-bodied voice and greater volume. These C1K concert and TIK tenor models feature tops, back, sides and headplates of solid Hawaiian Koa, a wood native to Hawaii and a favorite of island players. Both ukes feature solid Sitka braces, genuine mahogany blocks, and applied dovetail neck joints in the Martin tradition. Necks are crafted of select hardwood and capped with a solid Morado fingerboard; the concert has a 15 inch scale length, the tenor a 17 inch scale. Bridges are also of solid Morado, with white Tusq saddles. Open-geared nickel tuners with white buttons ensure precision. Finished in high quality satin lacquer. Padded bag included. Two beautiful examples of why Martin is still the name in superior quality ukuleles.
