I'm selling my Collins Grande Bouche. This is a guitar that Michael Collins built for me in 2006/07. It is a 12 fret D hole with the large 16 3/4" Favino body size. The back and sides are laminate with the outer laminate being nicely figured curly maple. The inside is mahogany, I believe, and is lacquered. The neck is 1 3/4" wide at the nut. Brazilian rosewood veneer on the back of the headstock. This guitar is featured prominently on Michael's Web site. On his home page, it's the guitar in the center.

There is another picture of it on the Guitars page:

See Collins' specs for his standard D hole here: ... _specs.htm

The guitar has a great-sounding active Schatten pickup installed. The pearl dots on the fretboard are at frets 5, 7, 9, 12 and 17. Comes with a nice arched wooden hardshell case. The guitar is in near mint condition. There is a very minor amount of pick wear in the usual spot.

I waited 15 months for this guitar, and it was well worth it. It's a rhythm machine. Full low end. Very defined midrange. Michael builds absolutely fabulous SelMac guitars. If I didn't need the money so badly, I'd be keeping it.

Email me for more pics/info. MSRP for the standard D hole guitar is $3,100. This doesn't include the upgrade to the Favino body size or the Schatten pickup. I'm asking $2,500 plus shipping.

    Ok, so maybe my expectations for what I could get for this guitar are too optimistic. Make me an offer. This is a really nice guitar. It's gonna make someone happy.
