View Full Version : Collings T1K Tenor

11-15-2018, 09:57 AM
I am considering selling my T1k Collings Koa tenor. It is a really beautiful uke, but I have too many high end ukuleles and need to reduce what I have. It was built in July of 2013. I am the second owner and I bought it from Artisan Guitars in Nashville. It is in excellent condition with no issues to speak of. The same goes with the case.

My question is what do you think it is worth? I paid $1,375. If anyone has experience with what these are selling for I would appreciate your input. I just don’t have much experience selling ukuleles. Thanks-Ray

It's Martin that makes a T1K.

Do you mean a UT1 Koa Tenor?

A new one (old stock but with warranty) sold on Reverb for $1950 last spring

I bet you could get what you paid for it as long as it's in excellent shape...maybe more. Got any pics?

You are right. It is a UT1.

Well, they're not making them anymore. Googling Collings UT1, I found that HMS was selling new ones for $1440.00. A used one was listed for sale on UU back in January 2018 for $975.00. Based on limited availabilty, I'd start at $1500.00 and go down from there, if necessary. YMMV.

Also seek an opinion from Artisan Guitars.

That is a good idea. Thanks
