(NEW) Collings O1E – 12-Fret Custom, JET BLACK! – $5,760

We’ve had several of these now… Think of it: small body, Engelmann top. Mushy little fingerstyle parlor guitar right?  An afternoon tea guitar for the polite class? Am I right?  Hell NO!  Let me say that again:  Hayell NO!  This little thing is hot as a two dollar pistol. It calls to mind Buddy Miller playing Rock riffs over Johnny Cash tunes. This thing
