This video gives an overview of my Collings C-10 guitar. This C-10 is made of adi/mah and has the deep body option and a 1 3/4 nut width. Thanks for watching.

Outstanding.  I've pretty much made up my mind that my next guitar will be a SCGC vintage southerner, but when I see something like this....

  That is a really nice little git. Nice playing as well.

             Modified: I went through some of your videos and enjoyed the comparisons. The Martin 000-18GE sounded like it had a sock in the sound hole compared to both the Collings gits. I like the Collings build a lot. A bit on the "heavy side" it seems, but so much attention to the fine details. I imagine that one day I'll have one around here.
           I do own a Martin OM-21 that sounds very sweet to me. It has been played in well for 16 years now and is very open. I was wondering if you thought that your 000 was a bit muted in comparison to the Collings, or is it the recording that conveys the lack of "shimmer" as compared to the Collings models. I was just wanting to hear how you felt about your different acoustics.
           And I do agree with all who stated that you are a very good player.  Thanks

stubby - it is a good day to be a guitar player isn't it!...........accept for all the hard decisions we have to make!!  I really appreicate you watching and best of luck finding your next guitar....maybe it will find you!

dependan - thanks for giving your time to watch the videos!  The Martin 000-18GE is one of the better Martin models IMO......that being said i no longer own one.  I just didn't play it.......it did have a different tone of course more 'Martin like' but i would agree a bit heavy on the mids.  it also need several mods done to it even though it was brand new when i bought it.  I sound like a Collings salesman but they just wouldn't sent guitars out that way.  Attention to detail........i don't know of any better than Collings.  The neck on the Martin and like many i've played felt good up to about the 7th fret then just got too big for my hands - honestly i've never missed it. I do think Collings, although Martin inspired, have their own tone.  Yes a bit brighter to my ear but more balanced and interesting as well.  Again thanks for taking your time to share your thoughts!

  Good morning Dale,
     I was at Austin Vintage Guitars yesterday. They had a Santa Cruz that had a model # close to your Collings and it was a deep body, that looked about the same size. Of all the gits I played there, that ones tone keeps coming back.
   $ were steep (almost 3K) and the neck had too much relief. But the wheels were turning. I didn't discuss anything with them. But I sure thought about trading in a few of mine to get that little gem.

Wonder if it was an H-13. Those are wonderfull....I've wanted an H-13/C-10/L-00 for a long time. Can't decide which one and then it doesn't really matter when I think about the prices...but then every so often I start planning to sell all my $1000ish guitars to buy one superb one...

And then I realize....I still won't play any better so why go through the agony.....
