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

(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

(NEW) Our best selling open back banjos are made by the good folks at OME in Boulder, Colorado. We’ve just received a pair (lucky us) of curly maple Wizard open-back banjos – one an 11″ and one a 12″ (nice and curly) with all the great cluck, pop, clarity and warmth we have come to expect from our Wizards. Here is our stately 12″ Wizard. OME really has a hit

(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.

(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? Behold the ultimate couch guitar, the Baby from Collings! We stock and sell more Babies than anyone, and we’ve heard it in dozens of tonewood combinations… but there is

(NEW) Collings D2 Custom, Torrefied Sitka Spruce, Cocobolo, Sunburst – $6,030

(NEW) This is one of the most drop-dead gorgeous dreadnoughts that we’ve ever seen! A custom D2 (we left off the herringbone this time) with a baked Sitka top (torrefied for stiffness and a more played-in sound) with a perfect shade-burst and stunning Cocobolo back and sides! The whole package looks fantastic, but even we were amazed by how perfectly

(NEW) Collings OM1, Sitka, Mahogany, 1 3/4″ Nut – $3,710

(NEW) Bourgeois Blues – Claro Walnut Slope D – $5,395

(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

(NEW) Collings OM2HG Wenge, German Spruce – $4,975

(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

(USED, MINT) 2012 Collings Eastside LC, Sunburst, Lollar Imperial – $4,150

(USED, MINT) From the “No-brainer” dept… a clean-as-can-be Eastside LC, in lovely dark cherry sunburst, with a single Lollar Imperial humbucker in the neck position.  This guitar comes to us scratch-free and ready to rip. 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

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

(NEW) One of our favorite models from Huss & Dalton is their original design, the FS.  These guitars are in the sweet spot between dreadnought and OM, blending the bigger bass of the former with the balance and comfort of the latter.  Designed with the fingerstyle player in mind, it features an extremely comfortable satin neck with super-smooth Gotoh 510 tuning

(NEW) Collings MF, Gloss Top, Sunburst, Wide Nut – $4,950

We’ve sold hundreds of them now and we know what to expect. We expect great sound, perfect workmanship, great tuning stability, buttery-perfect fretwork and dead-on intonation. We expect it and we get it.
