A great little guitar, lot of fun to play it.
True. Unplugged it sounds almost like an acoustic guitar. I have to say I felt like I was fighting this guitar while playing it, the combination of 12's with a 25.5 and medium to high action is not easy. I like 12-50 Thomastiks on my Eastside(24 7/8 scale) and 11-48's on my Soco'c(24 7/8 scale too). On my 360st(25.5 scale with floating trem) I use 10-46, but put a 10.5 on top.Seems like it's a part of you!
Warm yet articulate.
And agree, they are fun to play plugged in or acoustically.
Amazing how much tone is generated by that carved top with such a shallow sound box.
Thanks guys, I believe that these are Collings' most original/unique instruments.
