I bought a Collings UT-1 a while back and my mom liked it so much she took it over so Dana was kind enough to sell me another one so I would have one to play. One with a haircut and the other without. Hers is tuned high G and mine is low G.http://i390.photobucket.com/albums/oo348/nomaj112/100_3124.jpg

My mom is 80 years old and never played the ukulele. I guess the Collings impressed her enough to make her want to play.

No more Stan. The collings well is dry. When Mark PM'd me about his Mom I figured it was time to give that one up too. And I could be wrong, but I don't think that Mark polished up the first one. That sheen that you see on it is from me playing the heck out of it. And glad to hear his Mom is too!

Enjoy them Mark!

Personally I would have pointed mom to a "dolphin". Where does she go from here:)
