This deluxe-edition 814ce takes a best-selling Taylor model to even greater heights. The 814ce’s evergreen appeal comes from its impressive musical versatility, along with recent internal voicing upgrades that boost the warmth and produce a richer low-end response. The 814ce Deluxe sports a trio of additional premium enhancements: Adirondack spruce bracing that turbo-charges the tonal output; a beautifully rounded rosewood radius armrest for adding playing comfort; and Gotoh 510 tuners, which feature a 21:1 gear ratio for an ultra-smooth tuning experience. This is a fantastic choice for a discerning player looking for a high-performance guitar that can cover a mix of strumming, flatpicking and fingerstyle. Premium details include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylor’s Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a smoky ebony fretboard, and Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.Learn More

It features Bourgeois's Aged-Tone Adirondack Spruce top, with Brazilian Rosewood back & sides, and a special inlay in the bridge wings. As always, all of the sunbursts are applied by Dana Bourgeois himself.

The top is Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce, back and sides are Brazilian Rosewood, (that's right, Brazilian), 14 frets clear of the body, Ebony peghead veneer, fingerboard is Guatemalan Rosewood, Waverly tuners, Sunburst finish on top, firestripe pickguard.

ON ORDER - Collings Julian Lage Signature OM1A-JL
Call us to reserve yours now.
When Bill Collings first met the brilliant young jazz musician Julian Lage, in 2014, the two began a series of in-depth conversations about their respective crafts. Lage's profound insights as a guitarist would play a key role in the creation of Collings’ T (Traditional) Series guitars. This rare collaboration, which continued right up until Bill’s passing, in July, 2017, has yielded another exceptional new guitar with an old soul. Collings is proud to present a highly personal extension of the T Series: the Julian Lage Signature OM1.
Though Lage's guitar shares the same foundational specs as the OM1 T, it is unique in some key ways. Its neck feels like no other Collings guitar. That’s because it’s modeled after Lage’s cherished 1939 Martin 000-18. This pre-war gem is heard on the guitarist’s 2015 solo album, "World’s Fair", and was his main touring acoustic for years.
The 000-18's neck—which was of course originally hand-shaped and sanded—has a distinctive taper altered by decades of wear. For Lage, this particular neck had come to feel like home. Through careful analysis and digitization of its unique dimensions, we were able to precisely recreate its worn-in, asymmetric feel on his signature model. While we maintained the relatively narrow 1 11/16" nut of the 000-18's neck, we extended the fretboard from the original short scale to our standard 25 1/2" length for slightly greater presence and note definition.
Lage has an affinity both tonally and aesthetically for vintage guitars whose finishes have mellowed after years of playing. To recreate this effect we initially considered a varnish, but to achieve the ideal combination of a thin finish application and a vintage aesthetic, we landed on a custom satin lacquer. This new finish offering not only feels and looks right to Lage, he finds it has the same inherent openness of tone that is present in the best pre-war instruments.
With his typical descriptive eloquence, Lage characterizes his signature model as a "lovingly neutral" guitar. It has a remarkably even response between registers. It's not an empty flatterer, but an instrument that rewards you when you're playing your best. In this way, Lage, whose own education is unending, sees the guitar as a teacher.
Lage's signature model incorporates a script peghead logo not seen on a new Collings instrument in decades. This is the inlay that Bill hand-cut some 30 years ago when he started out in a tiny shop in Austin, Texas. We see this as a loving tribute to our late leader, who in his final project was able to realize the perfect new steel-string for one of today’s most exacting guitarists.Learn More

We are offering a limited edition 2015 Taylor 714CE Brazilian Rosewood acoustic electric guitar. This is a Cites Compliant guitar, it is stamped on the label. The back and sides are spectacular Brazilian Rosewood. Check out the gorgeous figuring and sap wood! This is a lovely guitar: lovely in appearance, lovely in tone. The Torrefied Sitka spruce top combined with the Brazilian Rosewood back and sides produce lush trebles, warm and punchy bottom end...a lively sound with great overtones that are almost 3-dimensional in character. It is set up with the ES 2 Expression System pickup, has a single cutaway with an ebony fingerboard, and a pearl rosette. The action is perfect...everything is perfect about this guitar. It is a used guitar, but it would be better described as "pre-owned" because we can't find any signs or wear at all. Perfect condition and looks absolutely gorgeous.

Those guys at Bourgeois know about loud, wow, this guitar is loud! We are offering a new Bourgeois Slope D "The Standard" with an "Aged Tone" Adirondack spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. It's a fine, fine, super fine guitar. It really is the standard all guitars should be judged by. If you are familiar with late 40's early 50's Gibson J-50 and J-45 guitars, you'll know the sound I'm talking about, warm, rich, loud and succinctly brilliant.
Dana Bourgeois' passion for acoustic guitars was fostered by those coveted instruments built in the pre-war era. "The Standard" model was inspired by the classic designs that emerged from the midwestern United States at that time, but incorporates many elements of Dana's own design.
It starts with the striking Ziricote fretboard and bridge, beautiful in figure yet subtle enough to maintain the pre-war look. The single ring Ivoroid rosette and rectangular bridge hearken back to those old designs. Our contoured headstock was introduced with the L-DBO model, and fits the look perfectly!Learn More

Have you ever spent time with a wonderful McPherson Guitar? If not, this is your chance, and we promise you will not be disappointed! Here's a model 3.0 XP, featuring some spectacular woods and incredible build quality. Mint condition. No scratches, dents, dings, modifications, or repairs. The frets look perfect and unplayed. Not only is this an incredible sounding instrument, but it also plays great, looks gorgeous, and has a feel that you simply have to experience. Born 12-13-2012. It features highly figured sapelle back and sides: sonically a lot like mahogany. By the way, "highly figured" is an understatement! You can get lost in the 3-D look of this wood. Waterfalls! And the top is a beautiful example of the "holy grail" of top woods: Adirondack Spruce. A lot of headroom. The harder you play, the louder it can get. The body tapers to 3.0 inch depth at the lower bout. This probably helps to explain the obvious presence and richness of the bass without it being overwhelming. The action up and down the neck is perfect: low and comfortable without any buzz. BIG tone here. Punchy and powerful, yet totally balanced over the entire neck, with fantastic sustain. The L.R. Baggs pickup and the soundhole-mounted volume control just top off this instrument and its appointments. Can you tell that I am crazy about this guitar?
This guitar would currently sell for $14,700. Grab it now for a fraction of that cost!

"Un objeto de gran belleza" That's a beautiful Spanish phrase isn't it? It means, "An object of great beauty". I can't think of anything that describes this guitar more eloquently and accurately. Where do I begin? This stunning instrument is a work of art that also happens to be an incredible guitar. It has a wonderful tone thanks in part to the Aged Tone Adirondack Top. Of course, the Brazilian Rosewood back and sides doesn't hurt either. This is a presentation model, like the beautiful presentation grade guitars and banjos made by the great instrument makers in the early 1900's. Instruments that were designed to represent the penultimate of the maker's art. The Bourgeois L-DBO-Presentation is that and more. This is as good as it gets, my friends.Learn More
This D2H has been upgraded with Adirondack Spruce braces, and a 1 3/4" nut.
The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, they bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles.Learn More
