Welcome to the Collings virtual shop tour. You can browse through our shop room by room by selecting a category below.
Would you rather see the real thing in person? We offer shop tours most Fridays starting at 3:30pm. The tour generally lasts 60 - 90 minutes, depending on the size of the group. Space is limited, so we ask that you please call in advance to reserve your tour. Because you'll be touring our factory during working hours, tour attendees will be supplied with protective shop glasses. No sandals or open-toe shoes are allowed, thanks for helping us ensure your safety.
This is where each acoustic neck is crafted and rough set to its intended body. We keep our bodies and necks separate through the finishing process to allow for adjustment in the final setup stage that ensures a perfect neck set. Each neck receives a fully adjustable truss rod, a hybrid mortise and tenon/bolt neck joint and each has two strips of spring steel installed on either side of the truss rod to increase neck mass. This aids the transfer of string energy from the neck to the body. Each neck is hand-sanded and contoured to provide a comfortable playing feel.
