(NEW) Collings OM1A Julian Lage Signature Model, Adirondack Spruce, Mahogany, 1 3/4″ Nut – $5,692

(USED) Waterloo WL-S, “Stella” Style, Sitka Top, Sunburst, Cherry Back & Sides – ON HOLD

(USED) These don’t come around often, a lightly used WL-S or “Stella” as it’s affectionately known around here! We love this model, it is the smallest in the Waterloo line and has a sweet sound that really draws the player in. Why would anyone give up such a lovely little guitar? To get the Deluxe version, of course! He got

(NEW) Waterloo WL-14 XTR, Black, X-Braced, Firestripe Pick Guard – ON HOLD

(NEW) How cool is this?  A new Waterloo WL-14 with the brand new painted-back FIRESTRIPE pick guard option!  We love this vintage-inspired look!  The back of the pick guard is painted so that it really *pops* against the black top, but it’s a more subtle look than the normal ivoroid… we can dig! This is an x-braced WL-14 with truss

(NEW) Collings CJ Mh, Sitka Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, Short Scale, Sunburst – $4,905

(NEW) Some guitar designs are evergreen, and there will always be a place in our hearts for a Gibby-style jumbo.  Indeed, there is so much to love about these slope shouldered dreadnoughts, they have an authoritative voice, big and woody, that blends exceptionally well with singing (but can definitely hold its own for leads, hot fingerpicking or heavy strumming). This

SOLD – (NEW) Collings Baby 1 Mh, Figured Mahogany, Very Special – SOLD

(NEW) Some time ago, Collings called us with an offer of a few very special sets of highly figured mahogany, top/back/side sets that were of tight flame and cut sequentially from the same board.  This offer doesn’t come around very often, and we decided to do something truly unique: an all-mahogany Baby!  When this little wonder arrived, we couldn’t stop

(NEW) Collings D1A Traditional, Adirondack Spruce, Mahogany – $5,535

(NEW) Wow.  Goodness.  I mean… wow! Collings has really done it this time… created a single guitar that can be justifiably knick-named either “Beauty” or “BEAST!”  The rumble that emerges from this guitar when strummed is the stuff of legend.  It’s a deep, moving sound.  One of the warmest brand-new Collings dreads we’ve ever heard! The Traditionals are mapping the

(USED) Collings OM1 Traditional, OM1-T, Sitka Spruce, Mahogany – SOLD

(USED) Just in on trade, a guitar that we sold “new” just a month or so ago!

(NEW) Collings D1 Traditional Dreadnought, Sitka Spruce, Mahogany – $4,635

(NEW) We’ll remember 2017 for many reasons, but as far as sales and enthusiasm for particular instruments, we’ll probably remember it most as the Year of the Traditionals. If you’ve been watching the site, you know that we’re going big with these, and that we can’t say enough good about them. They really appear to be an evolutionary step for

The Traditionals have a slightly

(NEW) Collings 01 SB, Baked Sitka Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, Shade Burst – $4,342
