Re: Elliot Capo on a Collings 0002h

I had my Collings looked at after about 10 years. The frets were worn and it had a run on a plek machine. Results were fantastic: playability and tone both improved. I would definitely have a check up. Any decent repair person will be able to advise- might well be an easy fix. As mine told me- Coll...
