Collings UT2 Ukulele Mahogany Body Black Doghair Finish Pearloid Headstock with Matching Pickguard ID-5501
Collings UT2 Ukulele Mahogany Body Black Doghair Finish Pearloid Headstock with Matching Pickguard
The UT2 is Collings 2-style mahogany tenor ukulele. This custom Collings UT2 comes with the Collings trademark ''haircut'' peghead shape and ivoroid body binding with custom rope purfling. 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!
A pearloid headstock overlay and matching pickguard bring the looks of this Uke to a whole new level... certainly worthy of taking to the stage with a fancy Manuel suit!
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.
