Exclamation Collings AT-16 Koa

Hi all,

Bill Collings was giving a talk at The Music Emporium in Massachusetts on Friday night. He had brought along with him the new AT-16 Koa. The Music Emporium posted a photo of that guitar on their Facebook page. It's a gorgeous guitar. In case you haven't seen it, the link below should take you directly to the photo posted on The Music Emporium Facebook page:

The link doesn't work for me... perhaps because the Music Emporium is a closed group?

A quick Google search of "The Music Emporium" and facebook takes you there.

(I thought Collings had discontinued their archtop line…)

Guy,
I hope Sphere's method works for you?
No, it's not a closed group.

That makes three of us. I owned a "standard" (if there is such a thing) AT16 in Adirondack over maple and it was sublime. I would love to hear how the koa compares.
