For sale is a recently purchased beautiful UT3K. I am new to ukulele's and thought I'd like a tenor best, but figured out I like the concert size & sound best.
This is an amazing instrument with wonderful bookmatched premium Koa top, back & sides. Brazilian fretboard, bridge & faceplate. Lightly flamed Honduran Mahogany neck.

Just restrung with Collings recommended, Savarez Alliance 150R set day before yesterday & one new set included. Original case in excellent condition as well. Ship's in Collings Uke shipping box.
No issues. No modifications. No surprises.

Sounds great, looks great, and in great shape. A few strumming marks that can only be seen at certain angles in good light.

Not looking to make anything, just getting my $$ recouped.
$2500 Paypal'd & shipped FedEx to your door.

I'm new here, but have years of selling & shipping experience on the Collings forum, AGF, TGP, eBay, reverb and others...

I have many more photo's I took today and have them uploaded to photobucket. Trying to get them to post here. Working on it.
See 17 photo's at link below. :)
