Re: Wanted: Brazilian Collings D2HA or CWA

That's a winning combination. The varnish finish add some warmth, I sure like my D1a varnish. Top it off with the headstock inlay torch & that's a very special guitar

Re: Traditional Cases Now Available

I have several of Bill’s cases; mandolin, OM & Dreadnaught. In all cases you can fit a package of strings under the headstock. & these cases are works of art.

Re: What is the sound/tone difference of the Collings 01's

DJ, there's an essential tonal difference with the T series. They sound older, more open, with a strong fundamental woodier tone than your standard Collings. I really like them

The all mahogany will have a warmer rounder tone than the spruce top.

Re: Thomastik Infeld Plectrum

DJ I used Thomastiks on an 01a I used to have. They sounded nice & warm. I did end up scraping the silk wrapping off the E & A strings since the 61 was filling up the pin hole to the point that the bridgepin had no room to seat properly.

Re: OM and the 1 11/16 nut width?

Collings doesn't market a 000 14 fret, so it seems that the OM is the generic catch-all for this body shape. It's not specifically used by finger-pickers. Collings offers it in both long and short scale and 1 11/16", 1 23/32 and 1 3/4" nut widths. Lots of players (singer/songwriters, flatpickers et ...

Re: Collings Made Case Information *UPDATE*

Disappointment aside...... at least there is a D case. Just think of the poor 12 fret 00 & 000 players :)

Re: 2007 02h

An 0 size whether 12 or 14 fret would have a lower bout size of 13" + change....with the 12 fret being a little wider even a D has only a 15 5/8" lower bout. The standard neck on a 14 fret 0 would be 1 11/16"

Re: 2003 OM1A - any issues in that time frame?

I can't think of any. Collings does a great job on the OM model & with the Adirondack top they're a very powerful guitar.
