    Default FS: As New Collings UC1

    ***SOLD***

    I purchased this Collings UC1 in September 2014 when word was Collings wasn't going to build any more ukuleles. I inspected it when it arrived and it's been in my closet ever since. It really has less than 10 minutes play time. This is a close to buying a new one as you can get. I'm going to be selling some of my ukulele collection in the coming months and this Collings is what I'm starting with. It is light as a feather, has peghed 4:1 tuners and comes from a non-smoking home.
    The label is signed by Bill Collings. Also comes with Collings branded hardshell case. $1500.00 + $40.00 shipping and insurance to US only.

    Hi Jim. 5 years and only 10 minutes playing time....what’s with that?
    Anyway, good deal. Where are you located?
    Thanks and Happy 4th of July!

    I'm in Charleston, WV. I'm mostly a soprano player. I just really wanted to get the Collings for collectability when they announced back then they were no longer taking orders.

    I've had a few questions about why I've never played this ukulele much. I really purchased this ukulele to add to my collection because I really enjoy collecting ukuleles. Being familiar with Bill Collings instruments and the impeccable fit and finish, I knew this would be a great ukulele. When I received the ukulele in fall of 2014, I tuned it and played it a few minutes and then put it in my humidified storage area for my instruments. It's a wonderful sounding instrument, light as a feather and vibrates all the way up the neck when strummed. As stated earlier, I'm mostly a soprano scale player and that is the only reason this isn't my main player.

    I was lucky enough to pick up a Collings concert ukulele from UU recently. Jim's description of it fits my experience of it - sounds great, amazingly light, and lets you play all the way up the neck with great sound. Beautifully made, as well. I think it's unfortunate that Collings no longer makes them, (though I understand it wasn't profitable enough for them), because it's hard to beat the quality of these ukes at this price point. (Or any other price point, for that matter.)

    You have a great collection of Martins.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!
