Collings UC2 SB Ukulele Mahogany Sunburst Finish ID-7637
Collings UC2 SB Ukulele Mahogany Sunburst Finish
The UC2 is Collings' gloss lacquer finish concert model with increased appointments. With solid Honduran mahogany top, back and side wood, the Collings UC2 comes standard with the Collings trademark ''haircut'' peghead shape, tortoise body binding with black/white purfling and a full body sunburst and high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Despite looking like traditional friction tuner, each of the four tuners are actually geared tuning pegs made by Pegheadz. Collings be praised, a ukulele that is easy to tune! The 4:1 gear reduction allows strings to be tuned more easily and accurately than traditional wood pegs (or Caspari-type mechanisms which require screw drivers or special keys).
Tune confidently and securely with the left hand while playing open strings; even during performance! PEGHEDS tuners return the fine-tuning function to pegs. Strings slide more freely over the smooth, wide nut than over the comparatively sharp edge of the bridge, where stress is concentrated and equilibrium of tension on either side is more difficult to achieve.
Collings makes instruments with such superb tone and aesthetics. The craftmanship is top notch and comes out in the tone, playability, and feel of their great instrument. This uke is truly a great one to add to any players collection.
