Beauty with a few problems

By ALICE C

from Portland, Oregon

Comments about Martin C1K Concert Ukulele:

I would give 5 stars because this ukulele is beautiful and has a wonderful sound. However, I had to return the first C1k due to bad intonation, very high string setup and poorly finished frets. To guitar Center's credit, they immediately ordered a different one. Unfortunately, the second one although even more beautiful than the first, also had bad intonation. The frets were much better. Overall the finish is good and it has a very sweet sound. Since GC gives you 30 days to return, I decided to take it to 2 different local luthiers to see if the intonation could be improved without too much expense. I was advised by both to just return it. However, Since I loved the sound and beautiful wood, I decided to have the intonation fixed. The bridge was set in the wrong place and was fixed by creating a new custom bridge to adjust the position of the strings. The total cost was $100.00 which included new stings and filing the frets. This ukulele is now perfect. I originally bought it from GC, at a discounted price so even with the additional cost of fixing the intonation, this ukulele sounds and looks beautiful and is worth the cost. I would advise to buy, but check it and have the price adjusted accordingly.

    By Timothy Clark

    Comments about Martin C1K Concert Ukulele:

    I received my C1K in the mail, and I couldn't be happier with it! I love the way it looks, the tone is superb, the craftsmanship is excellent, and it is very playable! I would most certainly recommend this Ukulele to anyone looking for good quality at a reasonable price! 5 stars for tone. 5 stars for craftsmanship. 5 stars for playability.

    Comments about Martin C1K Concert Ukulele:

    The uke arrived as promised.. I have to say I was a little nervous opening the box but it was exactly what I wanted. The color was a beautiful satin koa.. absolutely no imperfections. I have spent the first couple of days tuning but the strings are now pretty settled in.. Love the sound.. This is so easy to play & I would recommend to anyone looking to explore the ukulele. FUN..!!!

        Comments about Martin C1K Concert Ukulele:

        Very very happy with this purchase. Its solid quality without the flair. So you pay for the quality of the music and not the look. The tuning pegs are top quality here too which will make a significant difference down the road. The only thing I am thinking about changing is the strings - but thats such a minor thing in the big picture. This uke will be with me and my family for a lifetime. Buy quality so that your kids will have it one day!
