This Martin Tiple is an amazing sounding instrument!  It is incredibly loud and resonant for a small piece.  It seems to completely trounce similar Martin ukuleles, perhaps because the body is a bit deeper, or maybe this is just a really good one.

Two small repaired cracks, stabilized professionally, otherwise everything else is original and issue-free.

We don't have any tiple strings around the shop so the strings that were on the instrument when it came in are what you get.  They actually sound good, so they'll get you through for a while.

Includes what is likely the original case.
