    Default Collings UC3 in Like New Condition for Sale

    Considering selling a figured mahogany UC3 with Madagascar rosewood appointments, played carefully only a handful of times, with equally clean case and even the original shipping box. Am only selling because I have discovered I prefer the tenor ukulele. Asking $3,000 plus shipping. Thanks!

    Nut:1 3/8"

    I've known Adam for awhile now as we became friends last year chatting about Collings ukes. He is a very straight shooter and knows a thing or three about fine instruments! ;-)

    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."

    Curious about the relative importance of tonewood vs. the luthier? See Luthiers for a Cause to learn more!

    I recently saw a UT2 on Reverb.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!
