Martin Ukulele Book

Tom Walsh and the late John King have written the biography of the Martin ukulele. Fun fact: the famous dreadnaught guitar body shape? Created first for a Martin uke prototype.

I'm off to find a copy... Link

Got my copy about a week ago, and couldn't put it down! Not only a wonderfully researched and wonderfully entertaining book about Martin and ukuleles, but also -- based on the quotes from Frank Henry Martin -- a great lesson on how to write perfect (and short) business letters!
