(NEW) Pleinview Guitars Dreadnought, German Spruce, Indian Rosewood – SOLD

(NEW) Our luthier Raymond Morin and his partner Adam Rousseau build flat-tops under the banner of Pleinview Guitars, right here at our shop.  Most instruments are made to order, but occasionally they find a little extra time to sneak out a spec guitar.  This dreadnought was supposed to be that guitar, but it got scooped up just as it came

(NEW) Waterloo WL-K, Kel Kroydon Inspired, Sitka, Mahogany – $2,340

(NEW) Bill Collings and his Waterloo line of guitars have really caught the world’s attention. The WL-K, inspired by the depression-era Kel Kroydon guitars that Gibson was producing, is one of the most intriguing models in the lineup. It’s ultra-light weight, usually coming in around or under 3 lbs, and comes with a recommendation to use 11 gauge strings. Being

(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) 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

(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

(NEW) We sure like our Collings mandolins here at AMW, and we sell more than just about any other shop. We choose our own wood and we pat our own backs. 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.

(NEW) We sell more than thirty Collings mandolins each year (48 in 2013!!) and we like to think we get a bit smarter with each instrument.  We choose our own wood and we pat our own backs.

(NEW) Waterloo WL-JK Jumbo King, Indian Rosewood – $2,115

(NEW) The fun never stops with Collings’ new line of Waterloo guitars! We were as surprised as anyone to find out recently that for the first time East Indian rosewood would be an available option on the Jumbo King models, and of course we ordered a bunch. The WL-JK is the biggest guitar in the Waterloo lineup, based on the

(NEW) Waterloo WL-12, Sitka, Maple, Sunburst – $1,980

(NEW) It would be hard for us to overestimate how much fun we are having with Collings’ new line of Waterloo guitars. They’re fun, they’re funky, lightweight and responsive as heck. The perfect antidote to (and delivery system for) the blues! Included in the new lineup introduced at NAMM earlier this year were a couple of jumbos and a couple

(NEW) Waterloo WL-JK Jumbo King, Jet Black – $2,070

(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. It is unique as the only large guitar in the Waterloo lineup, and while it retains some of the funky vintage character of the smaller boxes, its size gives it a more authoritative voice with more

(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,
