    Collings end pins are glued in. Mask, use a high quality saw to take off the button, then *carefully* drill out the pin. I did it to put in a pickup.

    Re: Collings MT2 Review

    I am thrilled with my MT2-O. I did out a Brekke bridge on it, and like it quite a lot. It has opened up quite a bit in 18 months.
