A couple of years ago we went through all the music shops in Dublin, specifically looking for an SG for my friend. Our last stop was Xmusic, where I came accross an amazing Collings D1. When I started playing on it, it immediately felt like I was listening to a professional recording. It had such a nicely balanced sound, but I just couldn't justify paying that amount of money on a guitar back then. It disappeared from the webpage shortly afterwards, so I totally gave up on seeing that guitar ever again. Then probably 3 or 4 months ago, it popped up, while I was browsing on the Some Neck Guitars website. I compared the pictures to the ones I took at Xmusic back then and it was unmistakenably the very same guitar. Some weeks later we went up to Dublin again to see it in flesh and it felt just the same way as I remembered and I left the shop with paying the deposit for it. My plan was to sell my Regius Core 7 and my Dingwall bass to fund the balance, which happened eventually, so now I'm the lucky owner of my dream acoustic guitar. I'll probably change the Elixirs to D'Addarios, and it desperately needs some fret polish, since it was used and abused in the shops throughout the years (it's from 2015), but other than that, I'm super happy.
