collins petite bouche

I picked up my Collins petite bouche about a month ago and I love the guitar. It isn't completely flawless but I think I would hate it if it was. It sounds great and gets better and better with time. Plus Michael is a great guy and completely accessable. I couldn't recommend him more. The action was if anything a bit on the low side but I raised it with a couple of slives of business card and it sounded louder and better. Michael is making me a new custom bridge gratis. He will be at DFNY incidentally.

    excuse me if the following question comes off sounding somewhat focused on the critical-
    aside from the action, what exactly do you mean by "not flawless?" i've read other posts that say something to that effect, but a little more specificity would help. if you could turn back the clock, what would you ask him to change (or be aware of)? i recently placed an order with michael for a petite bouche. any response is much appreciated.

    Nothing is perfect... there are tiny imperfections here and there which you might only notice if you are looking very closely. I have yet to see any of these guitars without the same types of things, including Martins straight from the factory. This is a beautiful guitar with a great sound that gets better and better as it has settled. If you are looking for the perfect guitar, good luck. Personally, I could give a damn. I love it.
