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

(NEW) Waterloo WL-K, Kel Kroydon Inspired, Feather Light 12-Fretter – $2,340

It’s ultra-light weight, usually coming in around or under 3 lbs, and comes with a recommendation to use 11 gauge strings. Being

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 – $2,950

(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. The CJ-35 takes the woody, throaty sound of Collings’ slope shouldered dread, thickens it up a smidge, warms it up a pinch, and the resulting guitar does everything exceptionally well. Sitka spruce top

(USED) Collings 0001 Mh, All Mahogany, Short Scale, Bound Neck and Peghead – SOLD

(USED) If you’ve been fantasizing about owning an all-mahogany 12-fretter, one with a dry, woody tone and the added playing comfort of short scale, look no further… your 0001 Mh has arrived! We sold this guitar new late last year, and now it’s back with us on consignment.  The owner put just enough miles on it for the sound to

(USED) 2007 Collings SJ, Small Jumbo, Sitka, Maple – SOLD

(USED) Is there a such thing as a “perfect” guitar? How would we define it? We would probably want a guitar with a rich, authoritative bass that never got muddy… crystal clear trebles with an undeniable musical chime… volume to rise to the top of any situation… a comfortable, narrow waist for comfort during extended sessions… and while we’re at

(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

SOLD – (NEW) Waterloo WL-14X TR, X-Braced, Truss Rod, Baked Sitka Top – $1,980

(NEW) Leave it to Collings, they never rest on their laurels!  Wondering if a great thing could be made even better, Bill and the team decided that it was time to experiment with torrefied Sitka spruce on their flagship WL-14 model, and this is one of a limited run of “baked” Waterloos.  Thermally cured or torrefied tops have swept the acoustic

(NEW) The rarest and most prized guitar in the Waterloo lineup is the WL-S Deluxe.  These are built in small batches a few times a year, they don’t come around very often and they don’t last long when they do!  When you play one, it’s not hard to see why! Based on a historic Stella model, the WL-S Deluxe is

(NEW) Collings D1A-T, Traditional Model, Adirondack, Mahogany, Sunburst – SOLD

(NEW) For your consideration, a superb Mahogany dreadnought from the team at Collings.  By going with a thinner nitrocellulose lacquer finish, animal glue construction and a slightly re-tuned bracing system, these new Traditional guitars add a level of warmth and punch to the Collings build, taking the tone in a more vintage-inspired direction.  On this guitar we went with a

(USED) Collings D2G, German Spruce Top, Rosewood, Vintage Now Neck – SOLD

(USED) Some of our very favorite Indian rosewood dreadnoughts have German spruce tops, and Collings understands this tonewood combination very well indeed.  The German spruce, being typically stiffer than Sitka, brings a focus to the overtones inherent in the rosewood, so the resulting guitar is loud and warm, but also very articulate with just a dash of complexity.  The top
