Collings

Collings

Bill Collings moved from Ohio to Texas in the mid 1970’s and this move enabled him
to combine lifelong interests in both guitars and tools into the
challenge of stringed instrument building and repair. After a couple of
years in Houston, several guitars and a few banjos later, he headed west
to southern California.  In 1989, he rented a 1000 square foot space and hired two
helpers.

That same year, an order for 24 custom “Gruhn” guitars helped to
establish Bill in the national market. In late 1991, a 3200 square foot
“feed store” was purchased, on the outskirts of Austin, and was occupied
in the spring of 1992. By 2005, the size of the shop had tripled with
50 full-time employees and ground was being broken for a new 22,000
square foot shop. The addition of CNC technology helped to add a level
of consistency, accuracy and safety to parts production that was
previously unavailable. As the business grew and processes were refined,
there is one thing that did not change…Bill Collings’ commitment to
building the finest acoustic steel string instruments possible.

In 1999, Bill Collings started production of the first Collings
mandolins which, like his guitars, quickly set new standards for the
industry. Years later, Collings mandolins have expanded to include seven
models in both lacquer and varnish finishes.
