Martin Ukulele

Are martin ukuleles good?

I am going to learn the ukulele. I just called a guitar shop and they have a martin (he said he thinks it's a k? i have not the slightest clue what that means) it is $49.95. Is this a good uke for the cost?

Either you misunderstood what he said or he's lying or he's a crook. Martin ukes are wonderful but they're very expensive. "K" stands for koa, a rare tone wood grown in Hawaii, and that elevates the cost of the uke substantially. For example, a Martin model 2K ukulele lists for $1649:

There is no such thing as a $49 Martin uke. There's a model 0XK but that's $279.
