According to Lardy’s Ukulele Database (http://database.ukulelecorner.org.uk/y/yasuma), “K Yasuma & Co. were a Japanese manufacturer founded in 1950 who made very good copies of Martin Instruments. So good in fact that Martin won a court case for copyright infringement against them and had a lot of the Yasuda instruments destroyed. Though they mainly made Guitars they did make other instruments including Ukuleles and Ukulele Tiples, (similar again to Martins), as well. The company lasted at least into the 1970’s but is no longer in business.”
