first thing *I* noticed, is that they can't spell Ukelele
but aside from that, the whole thing has just become speculation on the name "Martin"....granted, some Martins have great sound, how many $$$$$$$$ can tone that maybe 1/10 of 1% of the people can detect be worth? (sorry about the sentence structure, I just had a wonderful 8% beer)
it is like million dollar Rolls Royces...there is just a 74% snob value on it, even if it is pretty and runs smooth. The scary part is that those who REALLY have big bucks to spend on those things are not usually the ones who can appreciate whatever extra 'sound' value they have anyway.
