it was a D2-H. i bought it at westwood music in los angeles because lyle lovett played one, and i just worshiped lyle. it was not cheap, my mother helped me buy it. it was an investment. i figured a real musician needed a real guitar… right? i toured with it for almost 2 decades and played it on every one of my records. you can really hear it on songs like ‘kept’ and ‘bulletproof weeks.’ it has aged perfectly. collings make incredible instruments. the care that they put into them is unmatched. truly. when i retired the D2-H from the road, i had them build me the black CJ i use every night on tour now and it’s a monster too. perfection. i can’t wait to hear how IT sounds in 20 years. aaron and i toured the collings factory in austin yesterday, and i’m still on a high from it. nerd-ville USA! in a time when disposable things have become the norm, it blew my mind to be in a place where passion and craftsmanship are ALL that matter.
