Re: Larger Bridge Pin on String Six

Re: FORUM INTRODUCTIONS

Glad to discover the Collings forum is back on line. I don't own a Collings but I would surely like to try one out.

Cracks like this are caused by lack of proper humidification. I've used this example before, but Ch...

Re: 00- 12 fret - Collings red-headed stepchild?

I thought i'd make a sonic point. "These 00 models really have a big sound for a little box" (Haasome). Mandolins and small and capable of volume....so are fiddles. There is a common misconception that a dreadnaught is the king of guitars.... but think pick-up truck vs sportscar..... a dreadnaught ...
