26 Daniel Weldon 5 months ago This is a good discussion, and I see why you guys like Collings guitars with their attention to quality. But to me they are reinventing something that doesn't need reinventing. But James has a good point that most of the CS Gretsch DuoJet models are over the top with features you wouldn't want (ie Penquin headstock on a Duo), but I wonder if I just order through a dealer a straight non-relic'ed black lacquer duo jet with dynsasonics, a true arc, and Bigsby. How much would that cost compared to this Collings. I read on the gearpage that these Collings are going to sell for around $7000 with a lot of cost due to the custom Ron Ellis pickups.
