Collings 002H 14 Fret Steel String Guitar

Collings 002H 14 Fret Steel String Guitar

The Collings 002H 14 Fret delivers one of the finest medium-body guitar experiences available, pairing Sitka Spruce with Indian Rosewood for a detailed, rich tone. Collings guitars exhibit a consistently high level of build and finish quality. In the world of production guitars, it’s hard to think of anything better built, and that can be extended to custom guitar builds as well. These guitars are pretty much as good as it gets.

Gibson J185 Original Jumbo Steel String Antique Natural, 2005

Gibson J185 Original Jumbo Steel String Antique Natural, 2005

Here we have a Gibson J185 Original Jumbo bodied steel string in Antique Natural finish, built during 2005 at the Gibson Acoustic plant in Bozeman, Montana. The J-185 is a very good but likely under-appreciated guitar, being overshadowed by the better known and slightly larger J-200. The Gibson J185 and J200 have many similarities and the key differences are not always seen at first glance. Both feature the Jumbo body shape, Sitka Spruce top with Figured Maple for the sides and back, and Rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge.

Ramirez FL1A Flamenco Blanca Spruce, 2010

Ramirez FL1A Flamenco Blanca Spruce, 2010

The now- discontinued Ramirez Fl1A Flamenco guitar is one of the standards for concert quality Flamenco instruments. It is traditionally constructed with a European spruce top, cypress back and sides and Spanish Cedar neck.  Ebony is used for the fingerboard and Indian Rosewood for the bridge, and the nut and saddle are bone.   The model name, FL1A, expands to ‘Flamenco’, Grade 1, and the A refers to the material for the top – Abeto, meaning ‘Fir’ but specifically Spruce as distinct from the Red Cedar pioneered by Jose Ramirez III.

Martin 00-14F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

Martin 00-14F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

Here’s an unusual guitar from the Custom Shop – a Martin 0014F cutaway guitar with ‘Toasted Burst’ top finish, built during 2015 in very gently used condition.  This lovely venetian-cutaway model has a Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany sides, back and neck, and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The 00-14F is a recent and custom-run model, and does not at present appear in the Martin catalog or website.  This example is in overall quite good condition with very little wear.  The thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish is showing signs of naturally sinking, and is very clean with only the lightest scuffing.
