    Cool

    I'm so happy I got my "Plain Jane" UC-1 mahogany while these things were still somewhat affordable. Great uke! Plays almost as good as a "DOG-HAIR".

    The one on FMM seems appropriately priced considering the rarity...if you are into that kind of thing.

    I had a look at that 'Dog Hair' too. It has been on the marked for a while - November, so he could be up for a deal. Just something about it though that isn't doing it for me (I'm also looking for a Collings concert) dunno what it is, maybe the pick-guard doesn't look right (in the wrong place for me) or the guy's playing. I like the 'painted' mahogany ones, the white or the TV Yellow, and I think the lacquer on the uc2/3 examples just brightens up the mahogany a little...

    The Doghair is very polarizing, people either love them or really dislike them. I'm one that loves it. However, I only like it only when they have ebony fingerboard and bridge. To me, the rosewood (like the one on FMM) really destroys the black/white visual theme.
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."
