Direct comparison between standard ad "T" models?

On another forum, I have been asked to comment on the "T" models compared to the standard versions. Whilst I have four Collings guitars, I have only very briefly seen/touched a "T" so don't feel competent to comment. I'd be interested to read/hear from anyone (everyone) who has observations about th...

Hi, my first Collings was a '98 build Ds2h #4549. It went through a lot with my including having the headstock shattered (not by me) shortly after purchase.

I realised that I needed wider fretboards way back in the '90s and searched for a long time for a Martin D18/28/35-S but none were to be had.

Re: Collings Acoustics and Old Strings

Hi, I used to change strings on all my 6 string flat-tops every two months, 12 strings, mando and Dobro every three. Things changed in 2017 when I had cancer treatment - got very weak, and lost my voice, and I couldn't think of playing for some months. In the caes the strings held out pretty well, l...

Oh yes, a 12 string, something like a Stella, or Harmony h1270 (I've got one and it's great).

Re: The T series - Please explain to me

Hi folks, I'm sorry that I haven't been around for a while but I've just caught up, and my thanks to all for answering my question. I'm wondering if te "T" series were a response to the Martin "Authentic" line or were they on the drawing board earlier? Do you folks think that there is a similarity i...

Once home I couldn't get to enjoy it, and in January, they told me I had throat cancer, and the guitar went up on the wall in my study, opposite big ...
