Default SOLD COLLINGS 03 MRG - Madi / German -

This beauty has less than two hours of playing time on it in my smoke-free, climate-controlled studio. It's been stored in its case since. Decided to try a smaller-body guitar. While it sounds incredible and everything you could ask for in a Collings, I feel more comfortable with my larger-bodied guitars. The old saying goes - my loss, your gain.

To build this guitar right now, will set you back north of $7k, assuming you could even find the incredible RW used on this one. It's as clean as any other new guitar you will walk out of a shop with.

AGF PRICE: SOLD on eBay shipped/insured CONUS. Paypal (if applicable) are additional.
No trades, please

That’s the nicest set of Madi that I’ve ever seen on a Collings - seriously stunning.
