Attacking the Martin Wall

Last Thursday I set out for Robert Wheeler’s abode in Littleton to meet with him and Greg Hawkes and Mark Occhionero for lunch and an appraisal of Robert’s newly arranged Martin ukulele wall.
Robert is a gracious host, and the three of us are probably not the most gracious guests…he wanted calm, serious appraisals and we wanted beer and to play some damn ukuleles!

Which we all did. Having much fun in the process.

Besides the lovely Martins, I fell in love with a twenties Supertone Taropatch that Robert had in his collection.

Robert has an exceptional collection it was wonderful to be there. Craig is right, there are so many wonderful instruments, including the Martins. I had fun with a Lyon & Healy Tear Drop Ukulele as well as a Martin Cigar Box fretless Ukulele, and too many others.

thanks Robert.

Looks like fun. Wish I could have been there but I think I'd drool too much.

Greg looks like he's about to be attacked from behind by a cartoon character.
