(NEW) Collings CJ, Built By Bruce, Adirondack, Figured Mahogany – SOLD

(NEW) Every so often we get a call from our friends at Collings, informing us that Bruce Van Wart, master luthier and Collings’ “wood man” since the very beginning, has built a guitar using some specially selected materials. These instruments are always crazy-good, taking Collings’ already impossibly high cosmetic and tonal standards and, yes, going even further.  Would we be

(NEW) Collings D2, Rope Purfling, Sitka, Indian Rosewood – $3,935

(NEW) A small twist on a stone classic! The only changes we made to the tried and true Collings dreadnought formula were to substitute rope purfling for the usual herringbone (classy move, no?) and we changed the nut width to the increasingly popular 1 3/4″. If you have played a Collings dread before, then you already know… but for the

SOLD – (USED) Collings Small Jumbo, SJ, Sitka, Maple, Full-Body Sunburst – SOLD

(USED) One of the most versatile and formidable guitars in the Collings lineup is their Small Jumbo. The 16″ lower bout gives this model undeniable volume and bass response, but its tight waist brings the entire guitar into perfect sonic balance… it is favored by rock n’ rollers and lead guitar players who want to expand into the acoustic realm,

(NEW) Collings C10-35, Sitka Top, Mahogany B/S, Natural – $4,185

(NEW) Bill Collings has done it again. It is now about 2 years since the introduction of the CJ-35, a limited-option model intended to optimize it for a more classic, historically faithful tone… something akin to a perfectly intonating, unusually articulate Gibby J35. That same philosophy has been applied to Collings’ newest acoustic offering, the C10-35. The body size is

At 15″ across the lower bout, it’s about the size of

(NEW) Collings OM2HMRA-T Traditional Series OM, MadRose with Torrefied Red Spruce – SOLD

So… What’s new under the Sun? Oh just this: Collings has decided to offer a new lighter and warmer “traditional” version of his dreadnought and orchestra model guitars. Here’s what Ol’ Bill has to say about them: “In the early and mid-70s, I was thinking about how to make guitars that would hold up better than most of the ones

ON HOLD – (NEW) Collings OM1 MC Deep Body, Baked Sitka Top, Mountain Cedar Back/Sides – ON HOLD

(NEW) We’re very excited to show off this NBD (Never Been Done) Collings OM!  This instrument has a torrefied or “baked” Sitka spruce top, and the torrefaction process helps to give the instrument more of a vintage flavor, a more played-in sound right out of the box.   Indeed, it’s hard to imagine a richer sounding brand new OM1, with the Deep Body

SOLD – (USED) Collings D2HG, German Spruce, Rosewood Dreadnought – SOLD

(USED, PRISTINE!) Here we have a mighty fine Collings dreadnought, East Indian rosewood back and sides and a creamy German spruce top with some interesting bearclaw figure.  We love to upgrade the tops to German on EIR dreads from Collings, the two woods seem to really bring out the best in each other.  This particular guitar is so lightly-used as

(USED) Breedlove King Koa, Cedar, Koa, Stunning! – $5,895

(USED) When we are lucky enough to get one of these Breedlove guitars in, it normally sells swiftly and then we field a few months of phone calls asking “Is it really gone?” and “Do you think you’ll get another one?” We got another one! If you’re reading this listing, you probably already know about the legendary King Koa… Kim

SOLD – (USED) Lowden O-22c Mahogany and Cedar – Fine Sound! – SOLD

(USED) We are pleased to represent this fine used O-22 from Lowden! The Lowden Jumbo is a large guitar without any risk of large guitar-booziness. It retains the famous George Lowden clarity and warmth with perfect balance. The Original Series was the very first Lowden introduced around 1976, and the ‘O’ model is George’s original Lowden body design. The condition of this guitar is

(NEW) Collings OM1 Deep Body, Sitka, Mahogany – $3,935

(NEW) How do you make one of the most popular guitar shapes in the world appeal to an even larger audience? The very popular “deep body” option on Collings Orchestra Models increases the depth of the instrument to that of a dreadnought guitar, increasing both the bass response and the sustain. The fundamental OM tone is unchanged, but the guitar

(NEW) Collings Baby 2H, Sitka, East Indian Rosewood, 1 11/16″ Nut – ON HOLD

(NEW) Just arrived, a lovely, completely stock Baby 2H with the perennially popular combination of Sitka and east Indian rosewood. This is a great tonewood combination for a small box like this. The Sitka is “easily excited,” as we say, with enough stiffness to hold up well under strumming, but enough flexibility to add warmth to the tone. East Indian

SOLD – (NEW) Waterloo WL-S “Stella” Sunburst, Sitka, Cherry – SOLD

(NEW) At long last, we’ve received our first “Stella” and it’s another compelling addition to the Waterloo lineup. Like everything in the line, this guitar is inspired by the no-frills instruments that were being manufactured for the catalog and department store markets during the Great Depression. The cosmetics can be spare, with nary a rosette or purfling line to be
