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

(USED, MINTY!) Here is a stellar example of the Collings CJ-35, a twist on their standard jumbo model that takes it in a more vintage-inspired direction.  The goal with this model was to make a slightly warmer, slightly mellower version of the standard CJ, one that might remind the player more of a classic wartime Gibson… but of course, Collings being

SOLD – (USED) Bourgeois Vintage OM, Adirondack Spruce, Brazilian Rosewood, Hide Glue – SOLD

(USED) Dana Bourgeois is directly responsible for bringing the OM back into fashion, having collaborated with Martin in the early 80s to breath new life into this classic model, and having built several thousand under his own name ever since.

(NEW) Bourgeois Soloist Commemorative, Limited Edition, Cocobolo – SOLD

(NEW) Thirty years ago, Dana Bourgeois and Eric Schoenberg set out to design the ultimate fingerstyle guitar, one that used the venerable Orchestra Model as its jumping-off point, but added top-tier exotic tonewoods, a soft cutaway for upper fret access, elegant appointments and of course Dana’s masterful voicing techniques. Thus, the Soloist was born, and now in 2017 we are

SOLD – (USED) Collings OM2 BaaA, Adirondack, Brazilian, Exceptional Sound! – SOLD

(USED) Early (1994) Collings BRAZILIAN Rosewood OOO2H Custom – No Logo – $7,250

(Just arrived)  (USED) We are privileged to “handle” many fine Collings guitars every year.  This one is special. It was built in the original Collings shop in April of 1994 (serial #1355) and was ordered specifically WITHOUT the Collings logo on the slotted headstock. It does have, however, a very cool vintage-inspired “hot stamp” of the Collings logo on the reverse side of the

(NEW) Collings Baby 2H, Sitka, Rosewood, Sunburst – $4,320

(NEW) We like big guitars, and we like small guitars, and we like pretty much everything in between, but what’s better than a super-small guitar that sounds like a big guitar?

(NEW) This is one of the most drop-dead gorgeous dreadnoughts that we’ve ever seen!

The whole package looks fantastic, but even we were amazed by how perfectly

(NEW) Bourgeois Blues – Claro Walnut Slope D – $5,215

(NEW) We are taking special pride in being the only “stocking” dealer for the unique and bad to the bone “Bourgeois Blues” model from our Blues buddy, Devil Dog Dana Bourgeois, in Lewiston, Maine. These custom slope D’s from Mr. B. are a bit of a secret weapon. They have that woody “hog-top” warmth and sweetness but they also have

SOLD – (NEW) Collings OM2HG Wenge, German Spruce – SOLD

(NEW) It’s hard to beat an Orchestra Model for all-around versatility, comfort and fullness of sound.  For 90 years or so players the world over have made this shape one of the most recognized and most popular, and some years it even outsells the mighty dreadnought.  It might be easy to think that there is nothing left to be done
