I'm Bill Motsko, and I'm an admitted acoustic guitar nerd. I've been a Registered Piano Technician for 40 years. I live in Columbia, MD and am 69 years of age. Although I have two Santa Cruz and a Martin, I'm a big fan of Collings guitars. My preference is for the Orchestra Model.

Re: I am Absolutely THRILLED to be here.

I'm so appreciative of the efforts those who made the New Collings Forum possible. I feel as if I'm "back home', again.
