Collings instruments are built to provide a lifetime of playing enjoyment. However, like any stringed instrument, they can require occasional repair or setup work to maintain proper tone and playability. While we proudly stand behind the workmanship of our instruments, the majority of repair issues that we encounter can be addressed by simple adjustments. Many repair situations relate to minor setup issues with the nut, saddle, truss rod, or humidity.

As a first step, we advise that you contact your dealer where you purchased the instrument. Many of our dealers have in-house repair technicians that can quickly resolve common problems. Those that do not can often recommend trusted local repair techs. If you don't have a dealer close by that can help, we can likely refer you to a qualified repair shop. Feel free to contact us with any repair related questions.

PLEASE BE AWARE that we do not currently offer non-warranty evaluations, setups, or repairs at our shop.
