Re: Tuner Change

The Waverlys on my 2008 CJ got crunchy. I called StewMac and they sent me a new set under the lifetime warranty, turned out great and used the orig bushings, sent StewMac the bad set. If they work well I don't fret too much about appearance. My favorites are #1 Schertler and #2 Schaller GrandTunes. ...

Re: N(U)GD - 2017 Collings D1A Traditional

Congratulations, now you know why Collings... what a great feeling. Collings red spruce tops can be a tad stiff when new but that's by design for the long haul. My CJ Adi didn't mellow out for a few years but came around, the play-in was a joy but later even better. best regards, bert

Re: Signed Labels

Mr Collings died in July 2017, it is very probable that he signed that label.

(first guitar he ever held) He took clean old tshirt, dropped on some 3in1 oil, sprinkled on some H. Behlen Pumice stone (grade 4F fine powder). Rubbed it in over the entire surface. Then, I ...

Re: Stability of Torrefied Tops

+1 Frank Not wanting to get into an expensive guitar to wet my feet, 27mos ago I bought an Eastman E20OM-TC (thermal cured red spruce). Turned out to be quite a good guitar, was 'played-in' day one.

Re: Strings on your D (1-3)

D'Addario EJ24 True Meds are much similar to JP New Meds, I use them on my CJmhA or EJ17s.
