Collings UC3 K Koa Sunburst with 41 Style Inlays ID-7093
Collings UC3 K Koa Sunburst with 41 Style Inlays
As with everything that comes out of the Colling shop, lots of homework and research have gone into their line of ukuleles. This Collings UC3 is built with beautiful custom Light Flame Koa and finished with a gorgeous Sunburst unlike any we've seen.
Koa produces a warm, rich and still very defined sound – between the darker sounds of Rosewood and the clean bright sound of Maple. On the first strum, it's clear this is a serious, professional level ukulele.
The gorgeous appointments on this Ukulele include Abalone rosette, 41-style top purfling and fretboard inlays, Ivoroid body, neck and peghead bindings and a rosewood fretboard and bridge.
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.
