Since you paid $3,000 for this cracked one, you might be interested in this mint 01 for a similar asking price. There’s a very nice Collings 01 Walnut E (2015) at the Music Emporium for $3,200

Nice find Paul. Music Emporium always has great instruments incoming....
I hope DJ lets us know what transpired with the guitar.

Greg,

Was this the one that was stolen? I hope it got returned to him.

Eric It was another '37. This one is his road warrior and has been everywhere with him. He did recover the stolen one, with the help of social media / media....etc

Thanks for all the feedback. I actually took it to another luthier in which he found that the crack did not go through the top and is just a surface/finish crack. He's recommending only a touch up on the finish which gives me a whole lot more confidence about this guitar. Im thinking its a keeper but at the same time I'm thinking about how it compares with a 01T. Hah!

I've got a 000-1A that has the same crack. It was a humidity thing. I went out of town for work and we had a deep cold snap; the heater dried out the air so much that the crack developed virtually overnight.

I had it repaired with cleats by John Allison in Austin. The crack occurred 8-10 years ago, and it's been completely stable since then, but it's still very visible. I play the guitar daily and it's never affected the tone so far as I can tell, and I personally think it's an outstanding guitar. It's definitely a player's guitar and not a collectors guitar though. If I ever sell it, I'm expect to take a haircut because of the crack. I'd be happy to post a picture later if you're interested.
Did the repair include finish touching up as well?

Terrific. Sounds like a pretty minor situation. Enjoy.
