A wonderful 1920s Martin (8-string) Taropatch Ukulele handcrafted by C.F. Martin & Co. of Nazareth, PA.
This historical and rare Martin taropatch ukulele was handcrafted of a Mahogany wood top, back, sides, and bridge with a Brazilian Rosewood fretboard. Two-ring concentric circle rosette and 8-string tuning configuration for accompaniment playing. Classic vintage Martin wood stain and natural finish. Single top purfling line and top Rosewood binding for aesthetic appeal.
A wonderful dry and aged wood sound with a broad range of tones and a fuller sound when compared to its four-stringed cousin, the ukulele. Wooden friction tuners account for challenges in tuning but add tremendously to the character of this historical piece. Some repairs. See photos for more details. A wonderful playing instrument that is quite the collectible piece as well. #200088
