Collings Guitars are proud to produce beautiful acoustic, electric and archtop guitars as well as stunning mandolins and ukuleles as well. Established in 1989 in Texas by Bill Collings, they had the vision of producing custom handmade guitars that would sound incredible – and they have fulfilled their ambitions.
The guitars not only produce beautiful acoustic, electric and archtop guitars but are renown for their production of exceptional mandolins and ukuleles too. Read on for a brief overview of what it is that makes the instruments so special:
Acoustic, Electric and Archtop Guitars – There are 20 different series of guitars using popular guitar styles and shapes whilst bringing something different to each guitar using handmade attention to detail. The square-shouldered acoustic D Series, for example is, a 14 fret dreadnought which although not an unusual design, has new tonal depth which can not usually be created with a deep-bodied guitar.
Mandolins – Each mandolin is made with the best possible tone, playability and ‘fit and finish’ in mind and means each model is stunning in every aspect. Created with high-quality eastern maple and spruce Collings mandolins are hand crafted in Austen, TX. There 12 different mandolin models to choose from and some of these are the instrument of choice with renown jazz mandolin player Don Steinberg, Leftover Salmon frontman Vince Herman and Jesse Cobb of The Infamous Stringdusters.
Ukuleles – The manufacturer produces these typically folk instruments to create something sophisticated and modern. The Ukuleles are put under the same attention to detail and love and care as every Collings instrument giving beautiful results. With 10 ukulele models to choose from the most popular details include; mahogany body and neck, lacquer finish, rosewood fretboard and geared tuning pegs.
