I've owned a Heritage Prospect for about a year. Definitely a favorite of mine. The smaller size works well for me. A few weeks ago I lost my mind temporarily and bought a used Collings I35 Deluxe. Its a beautiful guitar but if I'm honest with myself I can't really appreciate any significant differences between the Collings and the Prospect. They are both a pleasure to play but the Collings cost almost twice the Prospect. If I put a bag over my head (no comments thanks you) and played these two I doubt I could tell the difference.
