SOLD – (NEW) Collings OM1A Traditional, Adirondack Spruce, Mahogany – SOLD

(NEW) As you are probably becoming aware, we are in love with the new Traditional models from Collings!  These guitars combine the perfect construction, fit and finish of the standard line and add a few subtle tweaks to create a slightly warmer, more vintage-inspired voice.  Volume-wise, bass-wise, the T-series guitars seem to be a cut above.  Like I said, we

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

(NEW) Collings OM2H-T Traditional Orchestra Model, Sitka Spruce, Indian Rosewood – $4,770

(NEW) Over the last few years, Bill Collings and his team found their interest in older instruments rekindled, and the team set about creating a lineup of guitars with certain structural and spec changes that would help to evoke a more vintage-inspired twist on the (now classic in its own right) Collings sound.  The Traditional series guitars are the result of a

(NEW) Collings OM1 Custom, Short Scale, Vintage Now, Baked Sitka – SOLD

(NEW) Like all premium builders, Collings has embraced torrefaction as a means of bringing a vintage character out of a new guitar, right out of the box. This process, wherein the top is “baked” in an oxygen-free environment to reduce the moisture and volatile elements in the wood structure, always seems to create a guitar with a slightly warmer sound,

(NEW) Collings OM1Mh, All-Mahogany Orchestra Model – $4,160

(NEW) A very popular twist on the beloved Orchestra Model!  Oftentimes when we order an “all hog” Collings OM, we have them build it at short (24.9″) scale.  We find that this adds even more warmth to the woody mahogany voice.  This guitar is a perfect example of the model, and uses only the best quartersawn Honduras mahogany throughout. 1

(NEW) Collings OM1 with “Baked” (Torrefied) SITKA Spruce Top, 1 and 3/4″ Nut – $3,800

(NEW) Collings’ most basic, unadorned offering, but more guitar than most of us will ever need: the simply elegant OM1. However… on this one we were lucky to be in the right place at the right time as Collings was prototyping the “baked” Sitka spruce top concept. We’ve had a very good year selling torrefied Adirondack-topped guitars by various builders, and

(NEW) Collings OM1E, Engelmann Top – $4,025

(NEW) We’ve taken to saying that the OM1, Collings’ most “basic”, “simple”, “plain” guitar also happens to be the ONLY guitar that most players could ever need. We say that because there are few guitars that match the balance, clarity and overall brilliance of the beloved Orchestra Model, and like everything he does, Collings has taken it to the next
