Collings Guitars



I am delighted to be stocking Collings guitars again, their mandolins have been best sellers at TAMCO for many years now.

When I had a visit form the legendary Jeff Traugott in 2016 he was waxing lyrical about Bill Collings and his team's work. I also hear from many of my mandolin customers that they play Collings guitars so I decided to stock them again. For most they will need no introduction, impeccable workmanship and incredible tone comes as standard.

    Gorgeous flamed maple, back sides and neck make this OO1 from Bill Collings look as stunning as it sounds. It has all the versatility, depth of tone and clarity of the mahogany OM with a little added sparkle.

    The new WL-S Deluxe possesses a richness, dimensionality, and warmth that must be heard to be believed. Inspired by ornately appointed Stella guitars from the 1930’s, the WL-S features intricate wood purflings and custom acrylic inlays for an appearance to match its detailed tone. A hand rubbed varnish finish completes the WL-S both aesthetically and tonally, with a beautiful vintage patina and acoustical excitability that brings out the nuances of this ladder braced design. A solid cherry wood back and sides further enhance the unique character of this guitar, providing exceptional balance and articulation.

    All WL-S models feature a vintage correct “Soft-V” neck profile with a carbon fiber T-Bar, a slotted headstock, and a pyramid bridge with a cutthrough saddle. Hardshell TKL case included.
