Aloha UU people,

Would like to share my uke pixs here to you all.
It's Collings UT1K.
Got it for awhile but didn't have time to take a picture.

For me, Collings instrument is very neat and delicate!
UT1K is very light, loud and beautiful.
I hope you enjoy my pixs.

hi v74, absolutely gorgeous pictures. Thanks so much. They're making me drool. I have a Collings concert and I can understand how pleased you must be with the instrument. Just incredible how light and beautifully balanced they are, and what a sweet tone they produce. Thanks for sharing with us. :)

Oh man..I'm starting to want a Collings Koa Tenor.. If you don't mind, how much did you purchase this for?

I recently purchased mine from Hawaii Music Supply. They can found for around $1300 US. I played it before I knew the price and thought it was priced too low. Quickest sale ever.

Absolutely Gorgeous Uke! Was yours custom order? The koa on yours is a far superior to this UT1K in these pictures at Elderly.

That's a pic of a prior uke...One thing I don't like about Elderly is that lots of ukes are on order with date unknown...They told me that I could put a deposit on it but I passed as I have no idea what it looks or sounds like. I agree that v74 uke looks amazing!!!!

Even the one on the Collings site is not as nice.

This one on Hawaii Music Supply looks much more like it. That gorgeous koa wave. :drool:

Mine is not the custom order. Just a normal production uke from Collings.
I saw the others 2 of UT1K here in Bangkok. They both looks nice though. (nice koa pattern)

Mine looks bright (light yellow . . . like a gold), while others two look darker.
I love bright curly koa more.

The one on Hawaii Music Supply looks great too.

Hope you all enjoy my pixs. :D
Thanks
