    I've only played one as well, a flattop dread. One of two of the best guitars i've ever played. Bill built some great stuff.

    I played a Collings 12 fret recently . amazing acoustic . but the price :eek2:
    considering the Waterloo WL-12 instead . at half the price of the Collings model __ it's still close to $2000usd

    I didn't even know that they made hollow body guitars . very nice . but I don't need anymore GAS !

    I like everything about it except the trapeze tailpiece and the P-90s.

    Beautiful guitar though. Congrats!
