(NEW) Huss & Dalton FS Standard, Engelmann Spruce, Mahogany – $4,315

(NEW) Waterloo WL-S Deluxe Stella, Sitka, Cherry, Varnish – SOLD

(NEW) The Waterloo line has been hugely popular, and it’s no surprise.

(NEW) The biggest, burliest guitar in the Waterloo lineup is now available in Jet Black! We love the Jumbo King’s huge, raw mahogany sound.

(NEW) Collings OM1 Custom, Short Scale, Vintage Now, Baked Sitka – $4,075

(NEW) Like all premium builders, Collings has embraced torrefaction as a means of bringing a vintage character out of a new guitar, right out of the box.
