**Someone bought this ukulele for a friend, not realizing their friend only plays soprano. But they already had 2 buttons installed. So there is absolutely nothing wrong with this ukulele and the grain is particularly cool. You dont need to install any buttons because they are already on there. So it will be slightly discounted, and you do not need to add buttons at checkout if you want them.**
When I strum the C1K Martin Ukuleles, I always have an immediate "ahhhh" moment, because it is so warm, rich, full, and resonant. It really has a wonderful open and light tone. It is warm and full with a nice woody Koa attack. They are really wonderful ukuleles and the possess a lot of remarkable tone. The Martin florocarbon strings makes playing this ukulele light to the touch, with a lot of crisp attack for finger picking and smooth strumming projection!
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 C1K concert-sized model features top, back and sides crafted of solid Hawaiian koa, a wood native to Hawaii and a favorite of island players. Entire body is finished in high quality satin lacquer, and features an applied dovetail neck joint. The C1K Uke is a beautiful example of why Martin is still the name in superior quality ukuleles.
