CRAIG'S POV

When I opened the case for the first time, I was really taken back by how ALIVE this guitar looked.  The grain on the Koa top is almost 3D and the figuring comes at you in different ways at different angles.  It's alive acoustically and when I plugged her in, well, these pickups are about the best example of what mini- humbuckers should sound like, clean and clear sounding like a great single coil, but with the warmth, smoothness, and touch sensitivity of a fine humbucker.  The neck, as in all of Collings’ electrics, is wonderfully contoured.  If you like "burst" style 50's necks, then you’ll really love what Collings does.  I’m really particular (maybe a bit crazy) about how a neck FEELS and Collings really gets it right.  A very special guitar!

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.
