    These are such cool guitars! Collings had a Blonde I30 on display at NAMM with ThroBak '52/'54 P90 repros factory installed. Here is a clip of Ariel Posen playing it at the 6:00 min. mark.

    Fantastic playing.

    Your winds suit that guitar down to a tee.

    Wow, congrats!

    Maybe some day I'll hit the lottery. Otherwise Collings will remain beyond me.

    Very nice.

    Doesn't amount to a hill of beans, but might I suggest some black translucent knobs?

    Nice guitar! You didn't get it from The Music Emporium by any chance? I just picked up an Iced Tea Sunburst from there. I really like the guitar, and I think it has something to do with the Throbak pickups. I find the 11 strings to be a little stiff, since I am used to 10's . I might try to put 10's on someday. Enjoy!

    Congrats on your new I30...just amazing guitars! I think i saw yours on ME site - i visit there often. I got mine from Acoustic Music Works - i use 10's on mine and it plays and sounds great IMO.

    I hope you enjoy it even more than expected...the great thing is if your not playing it you can just look at it and it makes you happy!

    I toured the factory this summer and it was amazing...if your ever in Austin i'm sure you'd enjoy if you haven't been already. Here's a shot of mine they were kind enough to send in the build process. Thanks for getting in touch, your friend, dale.

    That is mine on the web site. At first I wanted a blonde one they had, but I took too long. The Iced Tea is redder in their web pic, but it is more brown which I like. I could look at the back of the guitar all day. Beautiful! Enjoy your guitar. The Throbak pickups are great and different than MHS pickups. I got to try a Collings and Throbak's ,both of which I had never tried before.
