    Default NUD: Collings Koa Tenor

    I ordered a Collings UT2K from Artisan Guitars in July 2020, and it finally arrived after a six-month wait. The timing was great actually, because I sold a uke just last week which helped cover the cost.

    This Collings Tenor sounds amazingly sweet, clear and resonant. I'm gonna love this jewel for a long time. This might be the last NUD post that ol' Steedy will ever make!

    Here's a few photos. The first two are from Artisan Guitars and I snapped the others when I brought her home:

    Fantastic looking Collings Steedy. I'm sure the two of you will be very happy for many, many years. Congratulations.

    Congrats on a fine looking uke. I've never played a Collings uke but I have played a Collings guitar and it was a very fine instrument.

    Haha, nope this is it. No more buying. In fact, I need to start selling ukes. I've got more ukuleles than I can play!
