Re: Collings through the years and your preferences

I have a '95 D2HBAAAA ....... Brazilian, red spruce that is very special to me. It was originally my best friend's and I acquired it upon his passing. Bill Collings acknowledged that he had carved the braces on it.

But ...... I have a new D-1AT baked that will set you free. :D
