(NEW) Collings C-10 Blackface, Spanish Mountain Cedar with Engelmann Spruce, Rope Purfling – $5,130

(NEW)  Another day, another reason to talk about how much we like Collings guitars…. When I first imagined this guitar – a few days before I called the custom order into Collings, I thought about a cool little cowboy guitar with rope purling and black face. I thought about some nicely figured Mountain Cedar and how sweet this guitar would sound

(NEW) Collings O1E – 12-Fret Custom, JET BLACK! – $5,760

We’ve had several of these now… Think of it: small body, Engelmann top. Mushy little fingerstyle parlor guitar right?  An afternoon tea guitar for the polite class? Am I right?  Hell NO!  Let me say that again:  Hayell NO!  This little thing is hot as a two dollar pistol. It calls to mind Buddy Miller playing Rock riffs over Johnny Cash tunes. This thing

(NEW) Collings D2-G, German Spruce Top – $4,430

Just arrived (NEW) OK, so we’ve seen a hundred or more of these now, and we are ready to say that our favorite way to do the “flagship” top-selling D2 model is actually to do the “21” style D2-G model – that is a tortoise bound D2 dreadnought without herringbone purfling, with German spruce top, and 1 and 3/4″ nut width. Now,

(NEW) Collings Custom D1H, w/ Herringbone Purfling, Abalone Rosette! – $4,050

(NEW) The D1, the base model from Collings Guitars. Now, truth be told, it’s all the guitar most players need and then some…. But we tend to add a cosmetic flare or two that makes the day to day drudgery of working around the world’s finest guitars a little less cumbersome – hence the hairy bone purfling and ring around the rosie abalone

The Adirondack braces add a

(NEW) Collings C-10 A ss Short Scale, Torrefied – “Cooked” Sugar Maple and Adirondack spruce – $5,825

(NEW)  Another day, another reason to talk about how much we like Collings guitars…. What’s new under the Sun at Collings?  Listen up. So…several builders, with whom we have been closely aligned, have been making hay while the Sun shines with a new “torrefaction” process wherein instrument woods, primarily Adirondack spruce tops, are “cooked” in an oxygen free kiln to achieve a

(NEW) Collings CJ Wenge Short Scale – $4,995

NEW – Just arrived! A new tonewood for Collings, and for us, African Wenge. The folks at Collings, no strangers to good wood, have had great success with this new tonewood, and we know it has a unique place among rosewoods. Wenge is a dark-brown African hardwood that has long been used by bowl turners and cabinet and furniture makers.

(NEW) Collings D1A, Mahogany Dread, Adirondack Spruce, 1 and 3/4″ Nut – $4,610

(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

(Just Arrived) (NEW) Collings SJ Indian/Sitka – $4,500

Just Arrived! – (NEW) The Collings SJ. We’ve taken it on as our mission to increase its numbers, and its availability, as it has been perceived for too long as being “just a maple” guitar – and as we all know, not everyone “gets” maple. Well, the (J-185 style) Collings SJ *is* a great guitar in maple, of course. But we’ve also delivered

(NEW) Custom Collings OOO1 Cutaway, Short Scale! – $5,040

(NEW) Your average OOO is a 1 and 13/16″ slotted headstock guitar.

Listen up! – custom Collings OOO-1, with Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, optional cutaway, solid peghead, ph
