Park Amps, Now at CR Guitars

Good things happen! And Park Amps is one of those good things. We couldn't be more pleased to announce that Park Amps can now be obtained at CR Guitars. Many of you know that Park amps were a classic back in their day. And now, thanks to the recognition that a good idea can be good again, they are being re-created in all their glory as new amp builds with the same old spark as before. That's right, Park amps are newly manufactured guitar amps that faithfully recreate the sound, feel and look of some of the best British made amps from the 1960s and 1970s. The first available amps use the traditional 45 and 50 circuits that have been made classic on so many of the best blues and rock recordings from the 1960s through the present. The man behind Park is Mitch Colby who had a 30 year relationship with two of the most iconic British amp companies. Make no mistake, these amps are re-created faithfully, down to the hard-to-find NOS parts and tried and true tube circuits. That's the only way Mitch Colby would have it. Thanks Mitch!

Johan Gustavsson Guitars

Gustavssons That Graced Our Shop

A rare set of Gustavssons came through CR Guitars recently and we wanted to take this opportunity to give you a look at these wonderful guitars. Like many luthiers, Johan Gustavsson can only produce a certain number of guitars a year and with sky high demand it is indeed a special day when one Gustavsson, let alone a set of four arrives at our doorstep. They've all been sold, but for those of you who like to torture yourselves with what could have been (and what could be in the future if you contact us) here's a great spead of luxurious photos to drool over. SWEET DREAMS!

Collings C10 Collection

As I've written many times before, my personal tastes leans toward smaller body acoustics. In my opinion, the Collings C10 model is close to perfection when it comes to smaller bodied guitars. Collings has built this model as a perfect platform to allow the player to customize this guitar to his or her taste while being able to keep the core integrity of the guitar totally intact.  At CR Guitars we have a selection of C10's that were custom designed with the player in mind. Check out the pictures, specifications and descriptions and let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy!!

The four guitars in set are (in the order seen above):

Collings C10 Custom
Collings C10 SS Sunburst
Collings C10 Cutaway
Collings C10 Maple Cutaway

Colby dtb

Colby Comes To CR Guitars

Our customers share something in common with Mitch Colby of Colby Amplification; caring deeply about tone. After a 40 year career based around amplifiers Mitch started Colby Amplification with a desire to produce the very best possible tube guitar amplifiers, amplifiers that have been designed with tone as the number one focus. Period. Everything possible is done to keep the signal path pure, all tube, and sounding great. With that kind of approach we at CR guitars felt that Colby was a great candidate for our limited lineup of amps. Indeed, Colby's creations fit perfectly with our hand-selected ethic - they are boutique all the way!

Acoustics, Hand Selected for You

We here at CR Guitars have done quite a lot of research on our selection of acoustic guitars. They're a rare cross section of instruments hand selected to appeal to a very special breed of guitar buyers - our customers. You see, we don't just select great acoustic guitars - there are plenty of those. We select exceptional acoustic guitars that have characteristics that will make them particularly noteworthy, not only for an acoustic player but for the electric musician. From specific neck shapes and body styles to incredible playability, we look for the acoustics that will knock an electrics player's socks off. A quick glance at our lineup should be pretty convincing - we carry, now or in the future, acoustics by: Collings, George Lowden, Raymond Kraut, Jason Kostal, Michi Matsuda, Joe Veillette and of course the oh-so-flexible Blackbirds. So take a look. We think you'll be surprised.
