New! Collings OM1A Julian Lage Signature Guitar, 2018

New! Collings OM1A Julian Lage Signature Guitar, 2018

This Collings OM1 A Julian Lage signature model, using the A for Adirondack Spruce top option, is an exceptional guitar and was the last collaboration by Bill Collings before his death in 2017. Based on Lange’s original 1939 000-18, the Collings OM1-JL uses traditional materials – spruce top, mahogany back, sides and neck, and ebony for the fingerboard, headplate and bridge. The nut and saddle are bone. The  tuners are by Waverly, and work very well.   On this guitar, the neck is carved to match Lange’s.

C. F. Martin 000-18 Steel String Guitar, 2015

The C. F. Martin 000-18 is an extremely versatile, great sounding guitar with a smaller body and shorter scale length than the classic D-body Dreadnoughts. As an ’18’ level model, Mahogany is used for the back, sides and neck, with Sitka Spruce for the top and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The 000-18 is well known for its even, well represented tone, excellent for both strumming and fingerstyle.

Collings 001 Mh Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 2012

Collings 001 Mh Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 2012

The Collings 001 is based on a very traditional design that’s been a standard for over a century, and this example is built with Mahogany for the top, back and sides.  This fine guitar was built in Austin, Texas during 2012. Like every Collings we’ve seen, the build quality is exceptional, with excellent playability and great tone. It is good condition, and we’d rate and price it higher except that there is some subtle finish marking, visible only from close up – from more than a foot away, it’s nearly impossible to see it and doesn’t really show in the photos.
