(USED, MINT) Collings 02HG 12-String, German Spruce, Rosewood – SOLD

(USED, MINT)  The Collings 12-string guitar. That’s right. 12 strings. As you can imagine, it is the BEST playing 12-string we have ever laid fingers on. We knew something was special when the first of these guitars arrived (after 3 days in a UPS truck – after traveling 1470 miles from Austin to Pittsburgh) tuned to concert pitch and PERFECTLY

(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

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

(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 – SOLD

(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

(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 – SOLD

(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.

SOLD – (NEW) Collings OM2HG Wenge, German Spruce – SOLD

(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

(USED) 1998 Collings Baby 2H, Sitka, EIR, Fishman Pickup – SOLD

(USED) Not a day goes by that we don’t get a request for a used, well-played Collings that might have some bumps and bruises, but is all broken in and ready for the stage/studio.  Here is just such a guitar, a 1998 Baby 2H that has been around, getting ready to celebrate its 20th birthday! You’ve heard us say that

(NEW) Waterloo WL-JK Jumbo King, Indian Rosewood – $2,115

(NEW) The fun never stops with Collings’ new line of Waterloo guitars! We were as surprised as anyone to find out recently that for the first time East Indian rosewood would be an available option on the Jumbo King models, and of course we ordered a bunch. The WL-JK is the biggest guitar in the Waterloo lineup, based on the

(NEW) Waterloo WL-12, Sitka, Maple, Sunburst – $1,980

(NEW) It would be hard for us to overestimate how much fun we are having with Collings’ new line of Waterloo guitars. They’re fun, they’re funky, lightweight and responsive as heck. The perfect antidote to (and delivery system for) the blues! Included in the new lineup introduced at NAMM earlier this year were a couple of jumbos and a couple

(NEW) Waterloo WL-JK Jumbo King, Jet Black – $2,070

(NEW) The biggest, burliest guitar in the Waterloo lineup is now available in Jet Black! We love the Jumbo King’s huge, raw mahogany sound. It is unique as the only large guitar in the Waterloo lineup, and while it retains some of the funky vintage character of the smaller boxes, its size gives it a more authoritative voice with more
