Modeled after Julian Lage’s cherished 1939 Martin 000-18, this signature guitar features an upgraded Adirondack spruce top, Honduran Mahogany back and sides and a custom satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Lage’s signature model also incorporates a script peghead logo not seen on a new Collings instrument in decades. This is the inlay that Bill hand-cut some 30 years ago when he started out in a tiny shop in Austin, Texas, who in his final project was able to realize the perfect new steel-string for one of today’s most exacting guitarists.
