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.
Each Collings instrument is meticulously set up over a three day period; this allows it to adjust to string tension and ensures it will play correctly right out of the case. We devote this extra time and attention to ensure that each instrument will play and sound as it should wherever it reaches our players, be it in a retail store or over the internet, domestically or internationally. We craft our ebony bridges and bone nut and saddle material all from rough blanks to ensure the proper intonation, string break-angle and action. We also utilize a combination of exacting PLEK machine fret leveling and hand rounding and dressing to achieve a silky fret feel. All of our models contain adjustable truss rods so that the action can be adjusted to best suit various playing styles and individual preferences.
