Collings Ukulele UT2 Tenor Mahogany with Custom Red Doghair Finish

The UT2 is Collings 2-style mahogany tenor ukulele. This custom Collings Ukulele UT2 comes with the Collings trademark ''haircut'' peghead shape with a custom Pearloid overlay and Etched binding as well as ivoroid body binding with custom red purfling. With mahogany top, back and side wood, the beauty of its wood is enhanced by a custom red doghair finish, making this one of our favorite of all the Collings Ukulele models! The red Doghair finish is derived from a red 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. The grain of the Mahogany has beautiful specks of red set against the natural luster of the body.

Collings Ukes also feature a highly innovative tuning system by Pegheds. These tuners are geared and offer much more control and stability than traditional friction tuners. 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.
