  2. USED 2007 Collings CL Deluxe Amber Sunburst Brazilian Rosewood Fingerboard
    $3,500.00

    We have one fine, super fine, guitar for you today. Oh, I should mention before I delve into this, that I saw Steve Earle a couple of weeks ago. Steve's guitar player played a guitar exactly like this, a Collings CL Deluxe! I was blown away by it. Now we have one in the shop. Life can be so sweet sometimes. This is a 2007 model, with a Brazilian Rosewood finger board (Collings no longer offers this), and a spectacular flame maple top. The pickups are Lollars, the finish is Amber Sunburst. This is Colling's top of the line solid-body guitar. A work of art by a master builder. The knobs and pickup rings are ivoroid; very classy looking. Actually the entire guitar is classy...it screams class and craftsmanship. It sounds phenomenal. The neck is big and wide. The handset neck joint is perfect. The Tone-Pros locking bridge and tailpiece are top-notch. The frets are in perfect condition. The guitar itself is lightweight, resonant, and in excellent condition. The Lollar Imperial humbuckers are a perfect compliment to the instrument. It has sustain for days! This guitar is flat-out as good as it gets. Comes with original hard case.

    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.

  4. Collings Traditional Series D2H T - Sitka/East Indian Rosewood #26157
    $4,725.00

    The Traditional or "T" Series guitars reflect Bill Collings' return to his guitar making roots and offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. Each T Series guitar is built using animal protein glue and a very thin all nitrocellulose lacquer finish, making them exceptionally dynamic and responsive. Bracing and tone woods are adjusted for weight and thickness to create a voicing characterized by warm, rounded highs and a present low midrange, while retaining a quick attack and strong projection. Each Traditional series guitar will come with a handmade lightweight Collings case designed and built in the Collings shop. The pairing of these new Traditional guitars and cases makes for a combination of old world quality and aesthetic that is unprecedented among instruments available today.

  7. Collings Waterloo WL-K - Vintage Shade #946
    $2,160.00

    Weighing in at under three pounds, the featherweight WL-K is an exciting new 12-fret addition to the Waterloo line built with maximum responsiveness in mind. Inspired by the elusive instruments manufactured under the sub-brand Kel Kroydon around 1930, which were touted at the time to offer the utmost in vibratory response and the finest tone available, the WL-K is delicately built using lightweight materials and supported by thinly carved braces. When paired with a minimal lacquer finish, the resulting tone is dry and transparent with just the right level of complexity in the overtones, capable of capturing the expressiveness of the player down to the finest nuance.

    With a 24 7/8" scale length and moderately sized, oval shaped neck, the WL-K is a fingerstyle player's delight, but this is by no means the extent of the guitar’s versatility. Exceptional clarity and note separation make it well-suited to a variety of other playing styles and a logical choice for singer-songwriters and purveyors of traditional roots music. A carbon fiber T-bar running through the neck provides stability and efficient transfers of energy back into the body, producing a resonance you can feel.

    All WL-K models feature carefully selected spruce tops and mahogany back and sides with a light shade top finish, vintage-style cutthrough saddle, and come sans-pickguard. Due to this model's ultra-lightweight construction, we recommend a maximum string gauge of .011" to .052". Hardshell TKL case included.

  8. Collings D2H - Sitka Spruce/Rosewood - Adirondack Braces - 1 3/4" Nut #25918
    $3,712.00

    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.

  12. Collings OM2H T Traditional Series Torrefied #26175
    $4,725.00

    Tradition is a wonderful thing, because a traditional instrument has stood the test of time.  It does the job, and it does it well, that's the reason it became a tradition.  It works and works well.  Collings has combined traditional guitar design with superb workmanship and created a new standard in OM Guitars, the Collings OM2H-T.  All the guys here at the shop are blown away by this guitar, it's the new favorite.  I love the case, it was made by Collings and is like the early Martin cases from the thirties.  The top has been upgraded with the torrefied, "Aged", option which takes an already great guitar and makes it even better.
