(NEW) Collings SJ Mh A ss sb, Adirondack Top, Short Scale, Shade Burst! – $5,535

Just Arrived!  (NEW) The mighty Small Jumbo, one of our favorite offerings from Collings. The SJ (J-185 shape) really doesn’t get its due as one of the strongest all-purpose guitars out there… with its 16″ lower bout it has low end fullness to spare and enough volume to challenge any dreadnought, all while retaining a balanced, punchy almost “electric” sound thanks to

ON HOLD – (USED) Collings OM3 German, Wenge, 42-Style Top Border – $4,650

(USED) Another gorgeous Orchestra Model, just arrived from Collings. If you follow this site closely, you know that we love pairing tight-grained German spruce with exotic rosewoods like Brazilian, Cocobolo, Madagascar and now… Wenge! Since first hearing this relatively new back/side wood on a Collings dreadnought during our visit to Collings last year, we have been hooked. Wenge guitars seem

(NEW) Collings O2HHrA, Honduran Rosewood with Adirondack Top – $6,095

(NEW) For those looking for a very small, comfortable guitar with unlimited headroom, punch and clarity, look no further than this very unusual and very special Collings 02H. We’ve never experienced this combination of tonewoods on this body size, and it’s something of a revelation. The volume on this little box is quite surprising, rivaling an Orchestra Model… and the Honduran

(NEW) Collings O1Mh “Hog top”, Adirondack braces, 1 and 3/4″ nut – $4,075

(NEW) There are few things in life as enjoyable as these very sophisticated small Collings guitars. While one might expect these guitars to sound “small”, we find that everyone is surprised by their volume and their immense practicality as a “travel” instrument, as a couch instrument, a recording instrument and in many cases – a full replacement for a large guitar

(NEW) Collings D2H-G, German Spruce Top, Adirondack Braces, No Tongue Brace – $4,435

(NEW) This is another of our slightly “hot-rodded” models, a GORGEOUS herringbone trimmed D2H with German spruce top, ivoroid binding, ADIRONDACK braces, figured Macassar ebony headstock veneer, NO TONGUE BRACE and 1 and 3/4″ nut width. We find these German topped, slightly hot-rodded Collings dreadnoughts to be just about the perfect cross-picking, flatpicking, strumming, fingerstyle, vocal accompaniment large guitars in

(NEW) Collings O1HMh Custom Hog Top, Herringbone! Abalone! – $4,475

(NEW) There are few things in life as enjoyable as these very sophisticated small Collings guitars.

(NEW) Collings D1A custom, No Tongue Brace, Adirondack Bracing, 1 and 23/32″ – $5,245

(NEW) The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, they bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also

(USED) Well-Bruised LEFT-HANDED Collings C-10 Custom Sunburst, DEEP-BODY! – $2,950

(USED)  Another day, another cool Collings guitar available at AMW! Here is a ten-year-old, heavily “personalized” LEFT-HANDED deep body rosewood C-10 with Sitka spruce top in sunburst. It appears the guitar was played aggressively with a thumb pick, or used to fend off an angry spouse. There are LOTS of deep scratches and gouges in the general picking area (and some that are a bit outside

(NEW) Collings D1, Adirondack Braces, No Tongue Brace – $3,870

(NEW) On occasion we like to “soup up” our mahogany dreads by stiffening the top via Adirondack spruce braces, while at the same time leaving out the tongue brace for a more active upper bout. We find that on the Collings D1, this is a great combination that gives a slight edge, both in terms of warmth of tone and

(NEW) Collings O-42Gsb, Wenge & German spruce, Sunburst – Slot-head – Spectacular! – $7,965

(NEW) Another gorgeous 12-fret “O” Model, just arrived from Collings. If you follow this site closely, you know that we just love pairing the finest exotic German spruce with the dense and highly desirable rosewoods like Brazilian, Cocobolo, Madagascar and now… Wenge!  Since first hearing this relatively new back/side wood on a Collings dreadnought during our annual visit to Collings last year, we have been hooked.

(USED) 1996 Collings D42, Sitka, East Indian Rosewood – $4,250

(USED) Here is a prize! A played-in but well loved 42-style dreadnought from Collings, dating clear back to February 1996! We simply do not come across many nearly 20-year old Collings, and we get very excited when we do… because as most players know, a great guitar only gets better with age. This majestic D42 proves it, having opened up

(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

SOLD – (NEW) Collings OM42MRA, Madagascar Rosewood, Adirondack Spruce, abalone – SOLD

(Wow!) We’ve sold quite a few OM42 Collings in Brazilian Rosewood, and we’ve disappointed a few of our international customers by not being able to ship Brazilian rosewood outside of the USA. So, we asked Collings to find us a “42-worthy” set of the highest grade Madagascar Rosewood (which is certified and legal for international shipment) and we had them build for
