    Description

    The Mamas and the Papas: Papa John Phillips' Vintage Martin Ukelele. John owned this uke for many years. His wife told us that he liked to sit in bed in the evening and play songs on this uke. Martin ukeleles do not have serial numbers, so dating this instrument to a specific year is impossible. It is likely from the late 1930s to early 1940s. Included with this lot is the original 'Alligator' chipboard case, and a letter of authenticity from John's wife, Farnaz Phillips.
