(USED) 1994 Collings D1, Adirondack Top, Mahogany, A Real Player! – $2,695

(USED) We get the request constantly: find me a pre-owned Collings, the more beat up the better, I don’t need no fancy options, I just need some SOUND.  Well, ask and you shall receive!  Here we have an awesome early D1 that left the Collings shop in November, 1994.  It’s got its share of dings, winder marks, lacquer chips, and

(USED, EX+++) What a pleasure it is to be able to offer this fairly recent Collings dreadnought with to-die-for, perfectly quartered old-growth BRAZILIAN rosewood back and sides!  This is certainly one of the last Braz guitars to leave the Collings shop, and who knows how long they were saving this very special set of wood… if we were back in

(USED) Collings DS1A Custom – $3,750

(USED) OK…you know how we worship Collings D1A guitars. “The one to have when you are having only one.” Well, every now and then we run into someone who wishes a D1A had a little less bite and a little more snuggle, a little less cut and a little more hug, a little less fight and a little more love.

(NEW) Collings D2 Custom, Torrefied Sitka Spruce, Cocobolo, Sunburst – $6,030

(NEW) This is one of the most drop-dead gorgeous dreadnoughts that we’ve ever seen! A custom D2 (we left off the herringbone this time) with a baked Sitka top (torrefied for stiffness and a more played-in sound) with a perfect shade-burst and stunning Cocobolo back and sides! The whole package looks fantastic, but even we were amazed by how perfectly

ON HOLD – (USED) Collings D1A SB custom, Varnish Finish, flourish, Brazilian Parts – ON HOLD

(USED) It’s no secret that Collings’ mahogany dreadnoughts are some of the fiercest flatpickers around. The crew in Austin has a knack for getting serious volume and clarity out of their dreads, and this particular guitar has those in spades. This sunburst 2010 model is in excellent condition, with no structural issues. There is one noticeable ding on the treble

(NEW) Collings D3, 42-Style Top Inlay, Adirondack, Wenge – $7,400

(NEW) As supplies of Brazilian rosewood continue to diminish (Collings hasn’t had it on the menu for several years now) we eagerly pursue new tropical hardwoods that have similar visual and tonal characteristics to the classic flat-topped guitars of yesteryear. One tonewood that we are building extensively with these days is Wenge, which evokes Brazilian’s complex sound, rich overtone content

(NEW) Collings D2, Rope Purfling, Sitka, Indian Rosewood – $3,935

(NEW) A small twist on a stone classic! The only changes we made to the tried and true Collings dreadnought formula were to substitute rope purfling for the usual herringbone (classy move, no?) and we changed the nut width to the increasingly popular 1 3/4″. If you have played a Collings dread before, then you already know… but for the

(NEW) Collings DS1 Custom, All-Mahogany, Rope Purfling – $4,565

(NEW) In case you were wondering where we got our nickname “Moe’s House Of Mahogany,” well it’s because we can’t stay away from BEAUTIES LIKE THIS! We love the sound of all-mahogany guitars, and it doesn’t get much better than the classic 12-fret dreadnought for big, warm, bass-y acoustic tone. This thing rumbles! 12-fret guitars have increased bass response thanks

(NEW) Collings CJ-35 Black Top, Sitka, Mahogany… First of its Kind – $4,860

(NEW) Here’s something we thought would be super-cool… a CJ-35 with a black top!  We were inspired by a guitar that drifted through our shop last year, an old Gibby slope D that was once owned by Karen Dalton… and we decided to have Collings emulate that aesthetic on their more traditionally voiced jumbo. The CJ-35 has become one of
