This Collings tenor is pretty great. I've had it for about a week or so--in fact after I bought it, I wrote a note telling the seller that it's amazing and I was totally happy with it. Beautiful figure, great Collings sound, amazing fit/finish. Not as good as a Moore Bettah, Devine or a Grimes, of course, but still great. (I put that in there just so it doesn't seem like I'm over-priming it--i've seen some threads questioning sales descriptions lately)

I'm only selling it because in the last two days, I lost a ton of money in the stock market. My main holding went down 45% (an oil stock). It's ok, but I have to sell some stuff I just bought so I have more spending money for the holidays. NO TRADES--there's no way that I can find another uke of this quality at this price anyhow.

there's a small ding on the headstock, but it's not really noticeable. Let me know if you're interested. Here's the original seller's post. I used some of his photos, just because I didn't have time to take more myself:

Hi Steve,
Don't sell that stock and lock in your loss. I'm in a similar situation with one of my stocks for a considerable loss...Try not to dwell on it. It'll come back around.

Ukes may be a very good investment right now....Hmmmm...this one sure looks nice, with a nice price!

good advice--the problem was that i tried to average down and foolishly siphoned a bunch of my cash (that I need) to reduce my average cost. Maybe it'll pay off, but psychologically I feel like I shouldn't have unnecessary expenses lying around and could use the cash that I let go.

I'm kind of surprised that nobody wants this. Maybe I'll keep it

What sort of tuners are on it? Are they just friction tuners or are they geared?

I can answer this for you Scottiver. Collings ukes come with Peghed tuners. They look like violin tuners, but are in fact geared tuners at a 4:1 ratio. They are very lightweight and work great. Collings ukes are very balanced and with the radiused fretboard and slim necks are very easy to play. This one is a beauty!

Are Collings fretboards 1 & 3/8" wide at the nut?

Yes. And to me, they have the perfect neck shape. Not too thick, not too thin and with a perfect profile.

Hi, Steve.

Sell your small-cap oil stock to capture the year-end tax loss now, and immediately reinvest the money by buying oil ETF, XLE (which is mainly the big energy companies--Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Halliburton, etc.) and sit tight. In a year, you'll be very glad you diversified and held on to oil.

As to your ukulele, it is stunning! What a great price for an uncommon ukulele. Superb! If I was in the market for a tenor, I'd be buying it. It's lovely. Cheers, Steve, for the holidays. Steve.
