Years ago a played a friends Collings guitar. The impression was ever lasting. Bill Collings made beautiful instruments and posthumously Collings will continue to make great instruments I am sure. When Bill Collings was asked what guitar he would grab if his factory was burning down he said “my Martin, I can build another Collings.” Ever supportive of other guitar makers and the musicians that played music, stories that I’ve read about Bill Collings make me happy to be owner of his craftsmanship. The Collings guitar does not make me a better guitar player, but even when I suck it sounds a bit better. My best to Collings Guitars on the anniversary of Bills passing. @collingsguitars #collings#guitar#music#notgreatbutlovetoplay#billcollings#craftmanship#wood#abreakfromvinylposts#madeinamerica
I don’t brag about my incredible #Soco from @collingsguitars nearly enough. 1. She pretty 2. It still astounds me 2 yrs later how it holds its own vs very, very good vintage Gibsons I have access to. Bill, Aaron, and the rest of the #collingsguitars crew really did craft a piece of functional art when they made the SoCo & I-35. As they did w/ everything else, too.
