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

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

(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,

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