(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

(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″.

(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
