Do you think pickguard 'thickness' affects tone & sound?

I've fitted a few of my Collings acoustic guitars with Greven Tor Tis pickguards. Just because I like the look of them better than the stock Collings guards. However, part of that 'look that I prefer', is the thickness of the Tor Tis guards. They are noticeably thicker than the stock Collings guards...

Re: Does this "Collings" 0001 look 'legit' to you???

I actually found another one from the same seller - https://www.ebay.com/itm/202627503968?ul_noapp=true

I'm thinking that these are legit as well. A bit 'different' than current production 000's, but "Bill-Enough" looking to be the real McCoys...

"Wanted to Buy": Collings 001, 002, or 003 with German spruce top

Hi all; Just seeing if anyone has a good used Collings 00 model with a German spruce top they's be willing to part with? It can be a 001, 002 or 003 model. The back & sides are not as critical as the top to me, which I'd like to be German spruce. ***Also MUST HAVE the standard 1-13/16" nut width . I...

I'm pretty sure ALL of Bills guitar had labels. Even the earliest examples?... - Says tuners are Waverlys, when clearly they are K...

Re: What CAPO?!?

As an insurance company ad says; maybe you need a different dealer not a different capo. Even on Ebay there are 4 models in stock at dealers and ready to ship today. I did see the ones on eBay, but they're all at least $20.00 more there than the MSRP + S&H; so not great prices. On top of that; I'm ...
