Collings D1 Sunburst Traditional Satin Finish

$5,750
Upon first glance, this might be "just" a gorgeous looking Collings D1-T ("T" for "Traditional"). So what makes it NAMM worthy?

1971 Martin 00-21 (USED, )

$2,950
Lovely-sounding 1971 Martin 00-21 just into the shop! We know what you're thinking -- "the 70's weren't Martin's best years."

And this is a super-clean guitar for its age: all original, crack free, with a finish that still...

Back and sides of Indian Rosewood, and a master-grade Sitka...
