(NEW) Waterloo WL-K, Kel Kroydon Inspired, Sitka, Mahogany – $2,340

(NEW) Bill Collings and his Waterloo line of guitars have really caught the world’s attention. The WL-K, inspired by the depression-era Kel Kroydon guitars that Gibson was producing, is one of the most intriguing models in the lineup. It’s ultra-light weight, usually coming in around or under 3 lbs, and comes with a recommendation to use 11 gauge strings. Being

(USED) 1999 Collings OM3, Sitka, East Indian Rosewood – $3,150

(USED) A well loved Orchestra Model that left the Collings shop in August of 1999, this wonderful guitar has been very well taken care of.  Hardly any fret wear and just a few superficial dings, this instrument is in exceptional condition for its age, and the best part is that it’s completely opened up and sounds GREAT! This instrument has

(USED) 2014 Collings D2H BrA VN, Brazilian Rosewood, Adirondack, Vintage Now Neck – $7,950

(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

SOLD – (USED) Collings CJ-35, Sunburst, Sitka, Mahogany – SOLD

(USED, MINTY!) Here is a stellar example of the Collings CJ-35, a twist on their standard jumbo model that takes it in a more vintage-inspired direction.  The goal with this model was to make a slightly warmer, slightly mellower version of the standard CJ, one that might remind the player more of a classic wartime Gibson… but of course, Collings being

(NEW) Waterloo Jumbo King Deluxe, Jet Black – ON HOLD

(NEW) Since the early prototypes, the flagship WL-14, to the WL-K and now with new models like the Scissortail, AMW has been your one-stop shop for all things Waterloo.  We LOVE these guitars.  Waterloo is the brainchild of one Bill Collings, and his affection for the sound, look and VIBE of depression-era instruments is obvious with every new model they

(NEW) Waterloo “Scissortail” WL-14, Sitka, Maple, NAMM 2017 – SOLD

(NEW) This is Collings’ latest addition to his inspired line of guitars based on the simple, depression era catalog instruments of the 20s and 30s. The Waterloo WL-14 is the flagship model, and is still by far the most popular instrument in the line. The “Scissortail,” named for a bird local to Texas, takes the same L-00 shape and makes

ON HOLD – (USED) Collings OM2 BaaA, Adirondack, Brazilian, Exceptional Sound! – $7,450

(USED) The Collings Brazilian guitars are becoming increasingly more rare, particularly the Orchestra Models, and we’re happy to present this wonderful sounding guitar with just a few miles on it and striking figured Brazilian back and sides. This is a 2006 model, from the “grading” days, when we could order a Brazilian rosewood Collings any time (we miss those days!)

(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.

(USED) Early (1994) Collings BRAZILIAN Rosewood OOO2H Custom – No Logo – $7,250

(Just arrived)  (USED) We are privileged to “handle” many fine Collings guitars every year.  This one is special. It was built in the original Collings shop in April of 1994 (serial #1355) and was ordered specifically WITHOUT the Collings logo on the slotted headstock. It does have, however, a very cool vintage-inspired “hot stamp” of the Collings logo on the reverse side of the

(NEW) Collings Baby 2H, Sitka, Rosewood, Sunburst – $4,320

(NEW) We like big guitars, and we like small guitars, and we like pretty much everything in between, but what’s better than a super-small guitar that sounds like a big guitar? Behold the ultimate couch guitar, the Baby from Collings! We stock and sell more Babies than anyone, and we’ve heard it in dozens of tonewood combinations… but there is

(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

(NEW) Collings OM1, Sitka, Mahogany, 1 3/4″ Nut – $3,710

(NEW) Let’s get back to the basics.  An impeccably crafted, hand-made Orchestra Model with a perfect tight-grained Sitka top and genuine Honduran mahogany back and sides.  Is there anything else you need? One of the most popular shapes in the lineup, the OM is always the number 1 or number 2 seller for Collings, and it’s easy to see why.

(NEW) Collings OM2HG Wenge, German Spruce – $4,975

(NEW) It’s hard to beat an Orchestra Model for all-around versatility, comfort and fullness of sound.  For 90 years or so players the world over have made this shape one of the most recognized and most popular, and some years it even outsells the mighty dreadnought.  It might be easy to think that there is nothing left to be done
