      We're honored that you'd share your very special NGD with us!

      I have had the pleasure of playing some nice 50s era Gibsons and Fenders over the years, and I just couldn't get along with the vast majority of them - I have the same small hands issue. The C-neck / slim taper neck profiles work a lot better for me too. When it comes to my personal instruments, thick shoulders on a neck are a deal breaker for me. It's cool that Collings offers the player a choice - I wish more companies did that on more models. I have a brand new 50's Strat RI here for review and it's beautiful - but while the neck dimensions might make it perfect for folks with larger hands than mine, it's not a guitar I could ever personally bond with because it would be too uncomfortable for me to play for long periods of time.

      You just made me even more jealous than I already was!

          That's a great idea - in fact, if you'd like to do a review, I might even be able to arrange to have it published as a HC article if you wanted to do that...

          Drop me a PM if you'd like to discuss it maplebaby.
