What an amazing instrument, Collings is a great builder!

it looks beautiful, bet it costs a packet. might even turn them out leftie for the likes of us on request. i love overstrung instruments i wish there were more ukes done that way. that kala archtop tenor should be done overstrung

I am amazed that no one seems excited about this instrument (except Grammy and me). Do ukulele players know about Collings?

Beautiful instrument, and its the first time I have ever seen MGM's left hand play that famous eBay strum he does - so now we can do the chords :)
