SOLD – (NEW) Collings OM1A JL, Julian Lage Signature Model, Adirondack, Mahogany, 1 11/16″ Nut – SOLD

(NEW) Here it is, folks, our first Julian Lage signature model OM1A.  As you may know, Collings almost never develops signature models, with this being only the second ever (after the late Pete Huttlinger).  But in the last few years, Collings found himself very inspired by both the perspectives and the playing of the one and only Julian Lage, and

(USED) Collings CJ-35, Sitka Spruce Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, K&K Installed – $3,250

(USED) A few years back, Collings reimagined their Jumbo model, laying out a selection of spec and materials choices that would culminate in a more vintage-inspired voicing.
