(USED) 2014 Collings D2H BrA VN, Brazilian Rosewood, Adirondack, Vintage Now Neck – ON HOLD

(USED, EX+++) What a pleasure it is to be able to offer this fairly recent Collings dreadnought with to-die-for, perfectly quartered old-growth BRAZILIAN rosewood back and sides!  This is certainly one of the last Braz guitars to leave the Collings shop, and who knows how long they were saving this very special set of wood… if we were back in

There is reasonable fret wear under the B string, and the

(USED) Kevin Kopp “Bird” Dreadnought, Sitka, Mahogany – $4,750

(USED, EX++) Back in our shop on consignment, another glorious guitar from Montana luthier Kevin Kopp!  We can’t get enough of these! Kopp does better than just about anyone capturing the spirit of the best vintage American flat tops.  This model, dubbed “The Bird” is a short-scale (just 24 5/8″) square-shouldered beauty that has a very sweet and warm yet articulate

(USED) Collings CJ-35, Sunburst, Sitka, Mahogany – $3,495

(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

(USED) Bourgeois Vintage OM, Adirondack Spruce, Brazilian Rosewood, Hide Glue – $6,495

(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.

(USED) Collings OM2 BaaA, Adirondack, Brazilian, Exceptional Sound! – $7,450

(USED) The Collings Brazilian guitars are becoming increasingly more rare, particularly the Orchestra Models, and we’re happy to present this wonderful sounding guitar with just a few miles on it and striking figured Brazilian back and sides.

(USED) Collings DS1A Custom – $3,750

(USED) OK…you know how we worship Collings D1A guitars. “The one to have when you are having only one.” Well, every now and then we run into someone who wishes a D1A had a little less bite and a little more snuggle, a little less cut and a little more hug, a little less fight and a little more love.

(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

The Eastside is Collings’ ES-175 style guitar, perfect for jazz and fusion, but no slouch when it comes to blues and rock.  The laminated construction

You’ve heard us say that

(USED) Martin D-41 Dreadnought, Sitka, Indian Rosewood – SOLD

(USED) There are few acoustic guitars more iconic than the pearly rosewood dreadnoughts built by the C.F. Martin company.  Here is an incredibly clean used example, showing not a hint of play wear.  Very nice tight-grained Sitka spruce top with abalone rosette and top border.  Indian rosewood back and sides, bound ebony fingerboard w/ large abalone inlay.  1 11/16″ nut and
