Collings 00 Mahogany

Collings 00 Mahogany

There’s something about sitting down and playing a beautiful small-bodied guitar that just puts a smile on my face. The way it responds in detail to the softest strum. Now, I love a nice powerful dreadnaught as much as anyone, but I really do feel there are elements of any guitar’s personality that get lost under a heavey right hand attack. The subtle overtones hidden within the note bloom, the way the harmonics shift throughout the decay… you don’t always get to appreciate these things at higher volumes. With that in mind, it’s easy to understand why I’ve fallen so deeply in love with this Collings 001 Mahogany. What looks at first glance like a simple little guitar quickly reveals a huge ammount of sonic personality and character. The more you listen, the more you hear!

DISCONTINUED – Bourgeois Standard D

DISCONTINUED - Bourgeois Standard D

The Standard D model from Dana Bourgeois gets my vote for THE best flattop guitar in its price point … period! This instrument consistently utilizes some of the nicest tonewoods I ever see on a dreadnought. It displays all of the attention to detail that you would expect from a Bourgeois, and each Standard D model has its top “tuned” by the maestro himself!
