(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.

Wenge guitars

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.
