Out of the many cool vintage ukuleles out there I really do love the Martin Style 3. I love the appointments on this model in either koa, mahogany, or cherry. Most folks seem to gravitate toward the more ornate Style 5 but I think the Style 3 has such a unique look with the stripes down the fretboard, the matching inlay below the bridge, and the really unique fret markers. If ever I won the lotto (you have to play to win, so not too likely) I'd get one, even if it were a newly produced one. It doesn't help that one of my ukulele heroes, Ukulele Ike (Cliff Edwards) played one.
