I have a beat up Collings D2H that I picked up from Allan Shadd a couple of years ago.It's been my main guitar pretty much from the day I first played it.

I'm just an old hipster that came to flatpicking by way of Duane Allman,the Grateful Dead,and the like.When I heard Doc do Black Mountain Rag on the Circle album it messed me up.I was still playing' Strats and Deluxe Reverbs.Then I heard Tony and Grisman, then Clarence and I bought a Martin.Been tryin to get this thing ever since.I tour as a solo performer and I'm tickled to be here:)
