Tenor ukuleles were made by Martin from 1928 to 1977. The vast majority were produced in the Style 1 configuration (called 1-T) for the tenor. A few Style 3, 4 and 5 were made in the 30's and also some koa body tenors in the same period, but these are extremely rare. Shown below is my Style 1-T ukulele manufactured in the mid 1960's. The number of tenor ukes produced by Martin was very small compared to the sopranos. My 1-T features a body of solid mahogany as well as mahogany neck. Body binding is a beautiful tortoise shell material and rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Fitted with original Grover friction tuners, the neck is a very thin and fast shape.
