This is a Martin S1 Mahogany Soprano Ukulele dated circa 1932-36 in "very good" condition. The tuning pegs have been replaced, but all else is original.
Ukuleles were in highest production from 1916 to the 1930's, though still manufactured in quantity until 1965. Production quantities during some periods were as great as Martin guitars. Martin ukes are considered to be the best for craftsmenship and sound. The Koa wood models are more collectible than mahagony models. The fancier style 5 models are worth more than plainer styles 0 to 3. All sizes are collectible.
The first Martin ukes, built in 1916, have serial numbers ranging from one to less than 200. Ukes made after 1916 do not have serial numbers and must be dated by specification changes.
Ukes have the Martin stamp on the back of the peghead until 1935. Peghead decals do not appear in catalog photos till after WWII.

Martin's Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.

Perhaps Johnny Cash’s most favorite Martin guitar (and he played many) was a specially made D-35, his – and Martin’s – first guitar with a polished black finish. Perfect for "the man in black," Cash played this guitar on stage for nearly 20 years. Now Martin has paid tribute to this musical legend with a close facsimile of that special instrument: the D-35 Johnny Cash Commemorative.

The Martin D-35 dreadnought acoustic guitar was birthed in the folk music boom of the 1960’s. Designed in 1965, the D-35 was created because Martin was experiencing a shortage of rosewood wide enough to build their famous D-28. Known for its 3-piece back, with a contrasting center wedge, the D-35 quickly caught on with musicians that preferred the cosmetic look of a three-piece back. Along with the cosmetic changes to the appearance, the D-35 offered a different sound and tone to the famous D-28.
Constructed with 1/4" bracing, the D-35 had a slight bump in the bottom end when compared to the stiffer 5/16" bracing of the D-28. Over time players really began to latch on to the tonal variation, and as a result, the D-35 quickly became an industry standard among players and collectors alike.
Vintage Tone Meets Modern Playability
Today, the D-35E Standard Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has been refined to combine the best of the vintage 1930’s appointments, with the playability of a modern guitar. Like the D-35 from the 1960s, the bracing is 1/4" thickness, but the placement of the X brace has been forward shifted to be located one inch from the sound hole. Now, the D-35E Standard Dreadnought has a very even bass, with just the right blend of the mid and high-end frequencies. The sound is everything you would expect from a fine-tuned Martin acoustic guitar.
Playability has been dramatically improved by changing the neck to a modified low oval, with a Performing Artist taper and 1-3⁄4" nut. The wider string spacing and comfortable neck profile allow a player to move up and down the neck with ease. And unlike the more traditional acoustic guitars of the past, the 2018 D-35 Standard Dreadnought will have that vintage tone, with a feel that will be similar to that of an electric guitar.
Along with an amazing sound and feel, this D-35 features a solid Sitka spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, ebony bridge and fingerboard, hand-fit dovetail neck joint, Nitrocellulose lacquer, Mother Of Pearl fingerboard inlay pattern, antique white binding, aging toner, bone nut and saddle, and a hardshell case.
This D-35 comes complete with the L.R. Baggs Anthem. With factory-installed electronics, all you have to do is plug in and you’re ready to go. The L.R. Baggs Anthem amplifies your guitar performance exactly as its being played. The natural sound of the pickup means you don’t have to EQ the tone to get the pure sound of the guitar. Just plug in and play.
