This is an awesome Collings "blacktop" (like a mandolin) tenor uke, spruce over maple. It sounds amazing, and as with all Collings, the craftsmanship and detail is impeccable. I bought it about six weeks ago, and it's only been played a couple of times, because as much as I love my ukes, my GAS has been stronger than my UAS (or URS - ukulele retention syndrome, as it were) and I have placed a Collings custom guitar order. So I'll need to let this sweet little uke (only one of its kind, and the shop doesn't plan any more) go sometime before February.

You can see a video of this very uke being played here:
