    Ok, cool. Wanted to clarify as some forums can be a little bit nitpicky about thread topics :D And thanks for the welcome, Markie! :rock:

    Bit of a special NGD this one. Its a Collection Santana (or Stan Tanner as I like to call them). But they don't do a Collection Santana you say! Nope, this is a one-off.

    It has all the normal Collection appointments; Pernambuco neck, Madagascar fingerboard and headstock. South American Mahogany body with curly maple top. Mammoth ivory and paua Hollow Celtic Knot inlays. Nitro finish, 57/08 pups with Santana I switching. Colour is Faded McCarty Sunburst (and is luminous).

    Its pretty light at 7lbs 8oz. Going to have to brush up on my Santana switching. I had always assumed the pair of switches just controlled each pup, buts its plainly more complex than that :)

    While I don't own a Collection I recently had the privilege to play a few. I must say they were all very impressive. The mojo they possess is quite strong. I especially liked the BRW McCarty with 408's and the DGT. Coral Snake is a brilliant color as is the one used for the DGT. Great, great guitars.

    That collection DGT is awesome. Then the Brent Mason was brilliant. The one I really wanted to take home was the international V. It is amazing how they stepped it up for those guitars.

    Wow, that Santana collection electric looks really nice!

    So here's a demo track I did last week in which my Collection #004 (the first run, a McCarty with a vibrato) is the lead instrument.

    There are a couple of rough bits, playing-wise, but I really like the sound of the guitar overall.

    ;)

    Mine is a complete and utter game changer for me. I haven't bought or even lusted after another guitar since:
