COLLINGS GUITARS
Instruments currently built in Austin, TX beginning in 1986. Distributed by Collings Guitars, Inc. of Austin, TX.
Luthier Bill Collings was born in Michigan, and raised in Ohio. In 1973, Collings moved from Ohio to Houston, Texas, and originally did guitar repair work. Colling's first flattop guitars date from this period. In 1980, Collings relocated his workshop to Austin, Texas. In addition to his flattop guitars, he also began building archtop guitars. Collings Guitars was founded in 1986. Today, the company maintains tight quality control over their production, and consumer demand remains high. In 2005/2006 Collings moved to a new building within Austin, TX. In 2007, Collings released a new electric line of guitars (see Blue Book of Electric Guitars).
