This guitar is a perennial shop favorite and will make a believer out of even the most seasoned Collings vet. This is a wonderfully lightweight and responsive guitar, with bass and low-mid rumble you won't believe is coming from a Sitka-topped OM. The torrefied top takes the new guitar edge off, and what you're left with is a dry-sounding guitar that retains the awesome clarity and punch you'd expect from a Collings, coupled with the power of a broken-in vintage guitar. This one is all but guaranteed to become your go-to guitar!  Price with TKL case.
