    Default Guess...Collings MT2 And New Gibson F5G Custom. Ashokan SoundBite

    Here's a quick recording I did this morning comparing the Collings MT2 to my new Gibson f5g Custom from TMS.

    I wish I could use the embedded Soundcloud player but it never works.

    To listen, just click on the mp3 link or soundcloud link...

    to get the answer as to which was first, you can click on the sound cloud link. One mando played the first aab until 90 seconds, then the other plays AB until the end.

    SC blocked here at work so I can't peak.

    I'm awful at AB guessing but... if my collings had sounded like the first one I would have probably kept it. Good news - they both sound excellent. Enjoyed!

    Great work Troy. There was not much in it between the two in the end. You have a well broken in MT-2.
