Collings UC2 Ukulele Mahogany Doghair Finish ID-7131
Collings UC2 Ukulele Mahogany Doghair Finish
This gorgeous doghair mahogany ukulele looks and sounds incredible. It's warm, bright and loud without too much emphasis on either end of the tonal spectrum. The mahogany has richer mid-range tones, full of harmonics. Collings UC2 gloss lacquer finish concert model with increased appointments. With solid Honduran mahogany top, back and side wood, finished with Collings' doghair finish. The Doghair finish is derived from a white grain filler beneath a translucent layer of dark lacquer - that others have attempted to copy, as yet still a secret known only to our friends at Collings Guitars.
Despite looking like traditional friction tuner, each of the four tuners are actually geared tuning pegs made by Pegheads. 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.
This Collings UC2 Ukulele Mahogany Doghair Finish comes standard with the Collings trademark ''haircut'' peghead shape. Additional custom appointments on this beautiful ukulele include Ebony Fretboard and Bridge Ivoroid body and fretboard binding, pearloid veneer, and a pearloid pickguard. Everyone needs a little dog hair in their life - this can be yours.
