CRAIG'S POV

When the folks at Collings sent me a picture of this NAMM guitar, I just had to have it.  It's a really beautiful example of how the 360 can be customized to fit your tastes.  The Lollar mini-humbuckers are very rich and open sounding and, with Collings’ 50's wiring option, do not get muddy as you decrease your volume control.  The quilt top is incredibly visual and the crimson finish really brings the grain pattern out front and center.  One of the features that really works for me on this guitar is the maple neck option.  Besides being blessed with some outstanding flame, the maple adds a bright crisp character to the tones that really make every note pop.  The neck contour has that comfy round 50's vintage feel to it, and, as on all of Bill's guitars, the fretwork and set up here is flawless.  This stunning guitar is just another example of Coll[ngs’ commitment to guitar perfection.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT COLLINGS GUITARS
Bill Collings moved from Ohio to Texas in the mid 1970’s. Spurred by a lack of interest in medical school, this move enabled him to combine lifelong interests in both guitars and tools into the challenge of stringed instrument building and repair. After a couple of years in Houston, several guitars and a few banjos later, he headed west to southern California. Making it only as far as Austin, where he shared shops with fellow luthiers Tom Ellis and Mike Stevens. From there, he set up his own small shop in a wooden "one car" garage. His reputation for outstanding quality and meticulous attention to detail quickly spread. In 1989, he rented a 1000 square foot space and hired two helpers. Fast forward to present day where Collings craftsmanship is respected by professional and amateur musicians alike…anyone on the quest for quality. Some of these include artists; Keith Richards, Lyle Lovett, Pete Townshend, Emmylou Harris, Andy Summers, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, Joni Mitchell, Don Felder, John Sebastian, Lou Reed, John Fogerty, Tim O'Brien, Pete Huttlinger, Kenny Smith, Brian May, Joan Baez, John Prine, Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap, and Steven Spielberg to name a few. You owe it to yourself to try one.
