My first purchase from Banjo Studio was this stunning all-mahogany parlor guitar. The transaction was smooth as glass, and my latest Collings arrived securely packaged and in perfect condition. It was a pleasure doing business with Dave. The guitar itself exceeds all expectations, and this is not my first Collings parlor. The 1 13/16 neck adds just enough width to make it very comfortable, and when combined with the short scale and 4-inch body depth, it is a joy to play for hours on end. My right hand falls naturally over the sound hole as if they were made for each other. As a brand-new instrument it is hard to assess how it will sound in two or three years of daily playing, but it the mahogany top really gives this little beauty an unexpected depth and warmth that will only improve with age. Overall, a wonderful instrument from a really good dealer. I will definitely stop in the next time I'm in the Crescent City.
I'm glad you like the guitar. That is a really special guitar. It exceeded my expectations every time I picked it up. Let us know if you have any questions and definitely come stop by next time you're in NOLA!
