Collings UT2 Ukulele Custom Spruce and Mahogany with Western Shaded Sunburst ID-9693
Collings UT2 Ukulele Custom Spruce and Mahogany with Western Shaded Sunburst
The UT2 is Collings 2-style mahogany tenor ukulele. This custom UT2 comes with the Collings trademark ''haircut'' peghead shape and ivoroid body binding. With mahogany top, back and side wood, the beauty of its wood is enhanced by a custom black doghair finish, making this one of our favorite of all the Collings Ukulele models!
The gorgeous custom UT2 features a Western Shaded Sunburst Top, a custom Spruce top wood, Grained Ivoroid Celluloid Body Binding, and Rope Pattern Wood Purfling.
The Mahogany chosen for this particular ukulele has an extremely intense grain pattern so it is an excellent choice for the custom Doghair finish. On close examination we decided to call it a 'Stone Washed' Doghair - kind of like their Faded Cherry, it shows off the grain pattern that Mother Nature created in this very special set of Mahogany!
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.
The tone is all Collings... incredible volume, playability and larger than life uke sound!
