Collings Guitars | Brand Story
More interested in guitars and engineering than in his pre-med program, Bill Collings took a job at a machine shop in the '70s and began building guitars on his kitchen table with just a few hand tools. Coming from a family of engineers, Bill’s experience as a craftsman and his natural curiosity equipped him to experiment and quickly improve his craft. Before long his instruments were in the hands players like Rick Gordon, Lyle Lovett, Pete Townshend, Joni Mitchell, and Brian May. Today, the company's mission is to continue Bill's legacy, following his passing in 2017, by continuing to build the finest stringed instruments available.
