'spaw ... didja know that many of the other guitar makers are guying wood from Jean Larrivee, because he is considered THE expert on the different types used and where to get them. He spends a bit of time in thye jungles and bush getting wood.
Biskit ... keep trying. I know where there a Collings D2H for sale ... 1994, $2100 firm. Been played but in good condition. Interested? Let me know.
And Rick ... you are a Martin snob and full-o-shit!
