    Thanks Jerry. I do enjoy Martin ukuleles. There's something about the tone of a Martin that is really hard to replicate, at least to my ears.

    If you ever want to give that Konter away, I'd be glad to provide a home for it.

    I sold my Iz tenor a few months ago, but I still have a spruce top from about 1944, a 100th anniversary soprano, and a Style 2 tenor.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Lovely & pristine Collins concert. Rarely do Collins ukes come up for sale. Even rarer, are they in this condition. I'm staggered that it hasn't been snatched up.

    Must be the heat...

    I'm sure it will go soon.

    Bumping one more time. If you're interested in a Collings Ukulele, you'd be hard-pressed to find one as nice as this UC1. It's basically new and unplayed.

    I'm not the seller, but the UC1s are mahogany.

    Thanks Joyful Uke. Yes the UC1's are Honduran mahogany with rosewood fretboard, headstock plate and bridge.

    I am curious as to why your asking price is so high? I own three Collings ukuleles. One of them is a UC1. I purchased it new from a dealer with the same case that you have pictured. I paid less than $1000 for it new. I've seen used ones sell on eBay for somewhere in $600-$800 range. Is there something that makes the one that you have more valuable?

    I have two - with the "haircut" headstock - and they cost more than $1,500. Since they're no longer being made, the prices have risen. I think $1,500 is the lowest asking price I have seen.
