Description

Details

An instrument that exhibits Martin’s many years in crafting some of the world’s finest ukes, the Martin C1K Ukulele offers a, larger than average, concert body shape with a solid Hawaiian koa top, back & sides.

True to its roots

Native to Hawaii, the solid Hawaiian koa used in the Martin C1K’s is a favourite among islanders, and with good reason. Along with looking beautiful, with its wide grain being dark brown, with interspersed highlights of blonde, it is has a rich character, which matures as you play. A tropical hardwood, Hawaiian koa gives you a nice of blend of the midrange of mahogany and the top end of maple. Starting out quite bright, playing the Martin C1K Ukulele more will reward you with a richer, sweeter, and more resonant tone. The body of the uke is also finished nicely with a high-quality satin lacquer.

Incredibly durable build

Along with traditional body wood the Martin C1K Ukulele ensures strength and stability by harnessing solid sitka spruce for its bracing, mahogany for the blocks, and a dovetail joint to connect the select hardwood neck to the body.

The neck is topped by a 17-fret morado fingerboard with a width measurement of 1-13/32'' at the nut, and 1-13/16'' at the twelfth fret. The nut is white Tusq, while the bridge material has been matched to the fingerboard, also being morado. The solid headstock of the Martin C1K Ukulele is equipped with a set of nickel, open-geared tuners, with white buttons. The outfit also comes supplied with a padded gigbag.
