Made in Nazareth PA, this is Martin's tribute to the Hawaiian legend Israel Kamakawiwo'ole himself. Made with genuine and unique quilted mahogany, they are warm, rich, resonant, full, and have a lot of projection! And mahogany is a wood that gets better with age as it is played. It sounds great right out of the box, but the more you play the richer your ukulele will become. It really responds to the energy you put into it. These are classic ukuleles with a beautiful Americana build and a beautiful sound. But is has the beautiful quilted mahogany with the gorgeous IZ headstock inlay!
To protect your new Martin I will include and Oasis humidifier. If you need an upgraded hard case, let me know and I will heavily discount the hard case for you.
The Uke you See is the Uke you Get!
I take individual pictures of every ukulele I offer because you deserve to have an "as close to local" shopping experience when you purchase on-line. So you can browse my inventory and pick out which ukulele and wood grain speaks to you!
A tribute to legendary artist Israel Kamakawiwo'ole ("Iz"), this tenor ukulele features beautiful genuine quilted mahogany construction, an East Indian rosewood headplate adorned with "IZ" inlaid in Hawaiian koa and a hibiscus flower inlaid in pink awabi pearl.
