I was wondering the date of the Martin and if any more were made by Samuel or the Kamaka company. Martin did not make instruments, unless they were employee made instruments, without identification. Also, is it best to repair the strings and tuning knobs before selling or leaving as-is?

Martin workers are allowed to build a guitar for their own use after they have been with the company a stipulated period.On this page, we will display some of the questions and answers. at the bottom of the label stand for Barth, Lutchen, and Feinberg, a major musical instrument distributor based out of New York city in the 1920s.If you prefer not to have your question displayed publicly on this page, just let us know when you write us. They sold ukuleles made by various companies, putting their own labels inside (or having the manufacturer glue in the BL&F label). Based on the tuning pegs on your ukulele I would date it to around the first half of the 1920s.

The style 0 was a plain mahogany model, the style 2k is a fancier model made from Hawaiian koa wood. Martin made the 2k model like yours from the late teens through the early 1930s, when they started using a decal on the headstock.Since serial numbers weren't introduced until 1898, approximate dating of the earlier guitars can be accomplished by knowing when Martin made changes to their labels or to the brand, which can be found stamped into the back of the head, the upper part of the back, and just inside the soundhole on the long strut which reinforces the back joint. Ukuleles didn't have serial numbers, but Craig Thompson wrote, "I recently talked to the ukulele expert, Mike, at Gryphon Stringed Instruments in Palo Alto.

I’m looking for my best friend, lover and partner in crime for a lifetime of love and laughter.” (Scary how easy it is to approximate the typical online dating profile, isn’t it? Even a specific response like “I noticed you enjoy biking. For example, if you’re writing to the foot model, you might say: Let’s drink to our fashion careers, Evan Sure, it’s a little goofy, but people actually respond to this stuff. Because it’s different, it’s audacious and, in a strange way, it’s kind of smart. It’s not an idle compliment or a generic, “Ooh, look what we have in common” line. Start your comment in the subject heading of the email, like this… Talk to you soon, Evan If these kinds of emails don’t work for you, no problem. Just keep in mind that the confidence it takes to write an email like that is compelling.… continue reading »

She was pissed, but calmed down when I said I simply won't accept being brushed off, and then came over and blew me. Unfortunately, this does fall under the "damage control" category of game, which can produce results but shifting your energy to more prospects and better delivery would probably be better.
