Martin T1K tenor ukulele with Martin logo gig bag. This is a larger than concert size instrument made from solid koa, with a beautifully flamed back. Martin started building ukes in 1916. Now 102 years later, they’re still building some of the world’s finest ukuleles. And though they could hardly be farther geographically from Hawaii, these beautiful Koa instruments are the real deal. Its always impressive playing a Martin uke and marveling at the huge amount of rich sound they squeeze into a pretty little koa box with four strings!
