    I tried this Collings D1 last weekend. Best guitar I've ever touched, hands down. My plan for next year is to get one.

    I've been gassing over these for a few months now, actually about to buy one of them right now.

    red. I've been severely tempted by the 8 string version of those for a loooong time now, but I can't stand the cockstock.

    Fantastic projection, extremely balanced sound and a very comfortable neck. It sounded super hi-fi, like something out of a cd. I had goosebumps while playing on it. It was like my D18 but a bit more perfect in every way.

    I've heard a lot of people say they don't like the headstock but i dig it a lot, reminds me of the jp headstocks a little. BUT, i do wish the CC53 8 string was still available, that thing was just drop dead gorgeous.

    I cant deal with the red stained body. I dont know why Ibanez keep insisting on that stupid feature. Just leave mahogany natural how it should look, or at least stained in black, but red??? this is not Gibson

    Talked to Ikke about that one, I believe the fretboard is cracked, unfortunately.

    Meanwhile, on Mercari Japan:
