That is a beautiful uke. $1500 BIN isn't a bad price on it. Now if only I had that kind of money sitting around...

thanks Kimo...na, no interest at all mate. :p

you know, Collings have the nicest finish options of ANY builder on the planet...they are simply jaw dropping. The vintage aesthetic of this one is gorgeous

At $1500 I can't afford it, at $1200 I may start looking for something to sell. It is a beauty.

Never liked that sunburst look on a guitar but on a Uke it's just wrong. Just seems like a way to ruin perfectly good wood.

Hmmmm. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. I think that it looks fantastic, incredibly handsome. And the Collings mahogany ukes are the best sounding ukes that they make, IMO.

I have a Johnny Marvin that has that finish and I will say I like it much better when it is beat up and antiqued...don't know if I would buy it new but I think the Marvin looks killer. Maybe if I'm around in 80 years I'll really love this Collings finish too!!

I really like Sunburst. Brad Donaldson is making me a mahogany sunburst tenor uke

The sunburst style of staining is one of the oldest and most popular. I think it was created to hide blemishes, at first, and it caught on. Now, it's just a matter of taste. Don't be so critical, golly!

Actually, I love this sunburst too. I wouldn't want it on all my ukes but I'd love to have at least one....especially this one! I also like Pohaku (sp?) sunbursting of his Mahogany ukes -- his a bit more subtle but I like a lot as well.

Phew, I thought I was the only one with that opinion! I love the look of natural wood.
