• Here's a new Collings OM1 T Julian Lage signature model, hide glue, ebony bridge and fingerboard, bone saddle, relic Waverly tunes with vintage oval buttons. I'll let Collings describe it: 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. We are 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. We extended the fretboard from the original short scale to our standard 25 ½" 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.

  • The artisans at the Fender Custom Shop created a Tele lover’s dream: The Limited-Edition ‘50s Vibra Tele® Heavy Relic®, the crème de la crème of Tele guitars. The Fender luthiers start with a ‘50/’51 Blackguard single-coil bridge pickup, then added two of the most popular, time-tested Tele mods: a Bigsby® B5 vibrato tailpiece and a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbucking neck pickup.

  • If there’s a better couch guitar than a Collings single 0, I haven’t come across it. With Collings’ typical terrific projection and great volume, this guitar will amaze you with its voice. Beautiful build, a gorgeous sunburst, short scale, customized with a 1 3/4 nut, pre-war scalloped bracing, a modified V neck, ebony fretboard and bridge, and herringbone binding. Impossible to put down. Lifetime warranty and hardshell case. Serial #31020. Collings says: "With the exception of the Baby, the 0 is our smallest guitar and is offered with the sameshorter scale found on the 12-fret 00. Although measuring only 13.5 inches in width (smaller than atypical classical guitar), the Collings 0 has tone and volume that belies its first impression as being less than full-sized. It can double as a travel guitar or a small OM, performing both roles equally well. The same neck and woods options offered with larger Collings models are available on the 0 as well, giving players an almost infinite range of tonal possibilities."

  • Here's a 2016 limited edition Gibson Custom Shop Dove in quilted maple, with a beautiful honey burst. These were limited to 50 guitars, so likely to be one of a very few lefties in existence. Traditional Dove appointments ... short 24.75 scale, ornate rosewood bridge with inlays, split parallelogram fingerboard inlays, back center seam marquetry, crown "pineapple" headstock inlay, and, of course, the intricate dove pickguard. The guitar is in excellent condition; the thick pickguard is lifting very slightly at the corner by the neck, as they tend to do, and at some point it looks like someone changed out the tuners, although the guitar has the correct Grovers, there is a faint ring around the poles on the headstock overlay. Baggs undersaddle pickup and original hardshell case. Typical low action and classic Gibson tone. Nice guitar.
    Condition: Excellent; Top: Sita spruce; Back and sides: Quilted maple; Neck: Curly maple, rosewood fingerboard; Nut: 1.725; Width: 15 3/4; Depth: 4 3/4; Scale: 24.75; Binding: Ivoroid; Rosette: b/w/b; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

  • Here's a limited edition Fender Custom Shop 55 Dual Mag Strat in a sherwood green metallic finish. Great guitar. The lacquer on this one has sunk nicely into the grain. I really like these pickups, I don't generally use the bridge pickup on a Strat by itself, but I like it on this guitar. And the blender wiring allows you to bring the neck pickup in with the bridge, or have all three pickups active, for some extra sonic options. Fender says: Combining original-era Fender style with modern refinements and hand-wound Custom Shop Dual Mag pickups, the Limited Edition ’55 Dual-Mag Strat Journeyman Relic could only have been created by the visionaries of the Fender Custom Shop. Calibrated for balance and volume, the Custom Shop Dual-Mag single-coil Strat pickups are a unique design, based around a proprietary blend of magnet types. Alnico 2 magnets temper the treble strings while alnico 5 magnets give a piano-like punch to the bass strings. All pickups are wrapped with copper tape and grounded to reduce EMI. The two-piece ’55 select ash body has deep contours and a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish for comfort—like a comfy pair of blue jeans—while the tinted, one-piece, rift-sawn maple neck sports a “’54 Soft V”-shaped profile. The 7.25”-9.5” compound-radius fingerboard and 21 #6105 frets give the neck a welcomingly comfortable playing feel. Under the hood, this guitar features a Strat ½ Blender wiring along with a Greasebucket™ tone circuit that preserves your gain when rolling back the tone control. The pickup routes and control cavity are shielded and grounded for reduced EMI while the anodized gold pickguard is a cool aesthetic touch, as are the “transitional” ’54 pickup covers and ’55-style knobs. Other features include 5-way switching, vintage-style synchronized tremolo and tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity. Condition: New, light relic; Body: Ash; Neck: Riftsawn maple, 54 soft V profile, compound radius; Nut: 1.650; Color: sherwood green metallic; Pickups: handwound DualMag; Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

  • Here's a gently used 2019 Collings I-30 LC in a great iced tea burst. Wonderful guitars, light as feathers, with true hollow construction and trestle bracing. C shape neck profile. Same size as the venerable I-35 -- slightly smaller and more comfortable than an ES-335. They just don’t get any better. With deluxe Ameritage hardshell case. Collings sez: Our goal for the I-30 LC was to take the concept of a double cutaway, fully-hollow, P90 equipped guitar and refine it to the extent that it offers something truly new for today's players. The result is one of the most acoustically responsive and versatile electric guitars we have ever offered. The lightweight, "trestle" braced body of the I-30 LC has been refined through extensive R&D, and is the distillation of knowledge gleaned from our popular I-35 and Statesman LC series. The trestle brace design directly couples the neck and tail block, creating exceptional strength and acoustical energy transference, while also allowing for a lightness and responsiveness that is both a tactile and musical joy to experience/ Playing the I-30 LC, you can easily feel the acoustic energy travel through the symmetric arches and re-curves of the top and back. These plates have been custom laminated and voiced for a tonality that is acoustic guitar-like in its resonance and dynamic response, but focused and feedback resistant enough to be utilized in jazz, blues, rock n' roll and many other styles. Our new custom designed trapeze tailpiece provides just the right amount of "give" for a relaxed string feel and effortless playability. Lollar Dog Ear P90s are perfectly matched to the instrument's acoustic response and offer a wide palette of tones from rich jazzy warmth to 1960's British Invasion style chime. Drawing its inspiration from both classic electric designs and our own previous models, the I-30 LC is an exciting step forward and an intriguing new Collings sound. SN# I30LC19286 Condition: Near mint; Body: Maple laminate; Neck: Mahogany, rosewood fretboard, 12 radius; Nut: 1 11/16; Color: iced tea burst; Pickups: Lollar Dog Ear P-90s; Scale: 24 7/8; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

New features include high-end components like an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles, GraphTech nut, 57 Classic and 57 Classic+ humbucking pickups, and Grover "Milk Bottle" Rotomatic tuners.

    2019 D1A T

    $6,450 $4,295
    Here's a gently used 2019 Collings D1 A Traditional dreadnought customized with a torrified Adirondack spruce top. A superb dread. Near-mint condition, with TKL hardshell case. This guitar would be $6450 to order today so save yourself some money. I'll let Collings describe it: "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, we 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. Our Traditional Series or "T-Series” guitars represent an exciting vintage-inspired tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound, designed and crafted to showcase the most desirable characteristics present in coveted pre-war instruments. 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."

  • Here's a gently used Santa Cruz Vintage Artist dreadnought, near mint condition, light as a feather, Brazilian headstock overlay, nickel Waverlys,  big but balanced sound. A seasoned customer who has owned many high-end acoustics played it and proclaimed it "the voice of god." This guitar would be $7675 to build today, so save some bucks. I'll let Santa Cruz describe it: "Doc Watson, who owned the prototype of the Vintage Artist, said, “This is the dreadnought I’ve been looking for all my life.” In 1991, Richard Hoover collaborated with vintage experts to identify the most desirable qualities of the iconic Pre-War D-18. Maestro Watson’s contributions to the concept were born of an appreciation of the clarity of mahogany’s tone and his requirements for playability. At the time, Doc had put as many hours into rockabilly on a Les Paul as he had on the dreadnought. His lack of preoccupation with a particular vintage model played perfectly with SCGC’s philosophy to ‘combine, not copy.’ After Doc’s test pilot duties on the prototype, he offered this thoughtful testimonial: “Son, what do I have to do to keep this guitar?” We present this instrument as the tonal equal and technical superior to the most respected Pre-War guitars. To achieve the characteristic EQ and tone of the legendary Doc Watson, aka ‘the Vintage Artist,’ this instrument features an advanced, scalloped X-bracing for powerful bass, complemented by the clear tone and definition of master grade mahogany."

  • I've been waiting for this guitar ... Waterloo by Collings' take on a vintage archtop acoustic.  Solid carved spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides with parallel bracing, semigloss nitro finish and a trapeze-style tailpiece. Hardshell case.  I'll let Collings describe it further: "Well-crafted archtop guitars have long been coveted for their projection, expressive articulation, and unique midrange growl. From the swinging big bands of the 1920s to roots music icons such as Mother Maybelle Carter, the archtop sound is deeply entrenched in American music history and has maintained its foothold into the modern era. Bill Collings had a passion for archtop guitars, one that stemmed back to his earliest days as a luthier, and would eventually become entwined with his identity as one of the world’s most respected purveyors of the craft. Bill’s original vision for Waterloo Guitars actually included plans to offer an archtop guitar as part of the lineup. He kept a 1930s flat-backed Recording King archtop in his back office, usually thrown haphazardly into the backseat of a stripped down 1940 Ford convertible, which he had plans to someday restore. The guitar was disassembled into pieces, but he would occasionally pull out the body or neck and inspect it, contemplating on how he might re-create such an instrument with his own twist. He was especially intrigued by the flat mahogany back, which is an integral part of the sound that runs consistently through the Waterloo line. With Bill’s untimely passing in July 2017, his plans for this guitar were sadly cut short. However, it was known among the people who worked closely with him that it was something he had always wanted to do. Thus, as a tribute to our friend and mentor, we present to you the WL-AT – an instrument that not only embodies the spirit of the Waterloo line, but takes the concept of a small-bodied archtop guitar to a new level of tone and playability."
