I'm new to this forum. Just got a Collings MT for Christmas. I'm an Irish fiddle player and violin repair guy. I have played guitar for many years and the first thing that I noticed about the Collings was the neck. Collings seems to have some strong opinions about design and this is just my First question...
Mandolin Cafe seems like a very nice place. Looking forward to meeting you guys online!
