Martin has built the world’s finest ukuleles since 1916, and tenor ukes since 1929 that have long been prized for their full-bodied voice and great volume. The T1K tenor-sized model features top, back and sides crafted of solid Hawaiian koa, a wood native to Hawaii and a favorite of island players. The entire body is finished in high quality satin lacquer, and features an applied dovetail neck joint. The T1K Uke is a beautiful example of why Martin is still the name in superior quality ukuleles.
Tenor ukulele with solid Koa top, back and sides. In the light of so much fierce competition in the form of highly spec'd, lightly constructed instruments from the Far East, Martin have upped their game dramatically with these fantastic all Koa models from the Mexican factory. They look great, and sound how they look.
