SOLD – (USED) Collings 01SB, Sitka, Mahogany, Sunburst, LR Baggs Lyric – SOLD

(USED) This 01 came to us on trade, and it’s exactly the way we like to see a used Collings: just a few dings and pick marks to show that, yes, this guitar was well loved and well played.  Not to worry, the instrument has no structural issues whatsoever, no cracks, and only the smallest bit of fret wear. Spec-wise,

SOLD – (USED) Martin D-28 Authentic 1937, Adirondack Spruce, Madagascar Rosewood – SOLD

(USED) Collings CJ-35, Sitka, Mahogany – SOLD

(USED) One of Collings’ most popular models in recent years, the CJ-35 takes the venerable Collings Jumbo and tweaks it in a more vintage-inspired direction. These are incredibly light and responsive guitars, and through some internal engineering (abbreviated tongue brace, ramped rather than scalloped bracing) and some structural decisions that favor a slightly mellower sound (Wenge fingerboard and bridge, short

(NEW) Waterloo WL-S “Stella” Model, Sunburst – $1,980

(NEW) Another compelling addition to the Waterloo lineup, the Stella!

(USED) Martin OM-JM, John Mayer Signature Model – SOLD

(USED) Here we have a late model, EX+++ condition John Mayer signature Martin OM. As most people know, Martin doesn’t seem to do anything too wild with their signature guitars, often just a set of cosmetic appointments that reflect the artists tastes and a signature inlayed into the fingerboard. It’s an approach that has served them well, as evidenced by

(NEW) Waterloo WL-K, Hand-Painted Southwest Scene – $2,790

(NEW) Another welcome surprise from Austin, TX… to coincide with Summer NAMM 2016, Bill Collings and the Waterloo team decided to create some special WL-K models with custom, hand-painted finishes.

(NEW) Collings D3, 42-Style Top Inlay, Adirondack, Wenge – $7,400

(NEW) As supplies of Brazilian rosewood continue to diminish (Collings hasn’t had it on the menu for several years now) we eagerly pursue new tropical hardwoods that have similar visual and tonal characteristics to the classic flat-topped guitars of yesteryear. One tonewood that we are building extensively with these days is Wenge, which evokes Brazilian’s complex sound, rich overtone content
