(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. This process, wherein the top is “baked” in an oxygen-free environment to reduce the moisture and volatile elements in the wood structure, always seems to create a guitar with a slightly warmer sound,

(NEW) Collings OM1Mh, All-Mahogany Orchestra Model – $4,160

(NEW) A very popular twist on the beloved Orchestra Model!  Oftentimes when we order an “all hog” Collings OM, we have them build it at short (24.9″) scale.  We find that this adds even more warmth to the woody mahogany voice.  This guitar is a perfect example of the model, and uses only the best quartersawn Honduras mahogany throughout. 1
