This guitar in stunning and a great new kid on the scene in comparison to the old dogs like Gibson and Fender but they have made quite an impression! The quality is out of this world and the sound is incredible! Some of my most favorite acoustics that have come through the shop have been Collings! It isn’t easy to make a name for yourself in this industry and when it happens it is for a reason! This Collings in particular is in near MINT shape and is in collector owned condition. Very few and faint markings here and there, a couple finish checks by the pick up selector as well as a two dings by the pick ups. All extremely minor and overall the guitar looks perfect! It comes all original in its original case. A true beauty with out of this world sound! WEIGHS in at: 7lbs 4ozA Little Bit About Collings: Bill Collings and his team of skilled luthiers build custom handmade acoustic and electric guitars, mandolins, and ukuleles in Austin, Texas.
