William R. Collings
8/9/1948 – 7/14/2017

We lost our dear friend and mentor Bill Collings yesterday. He was the amazingly creative force behind Collings Guitars for over 40 years. Through his unique and innate understanding of how things work, and how to make things work better, he set the bar in our industry and touched many lives in the process. His skill and incredible sense of design were not just limited to working with wood, but were also obvious in his passion for building hot rods. To Bill, the design and execution of elegant form and function were what mattered most.

Perhaps even more exceptional than his ability to craft some of the finest instruments in the world, was his ability to teach and inspire. He created a quality-centered culture that will carry on to honor his life’s work and legacy. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed. Our hearts are with his family.

We are constantly working to bring in top recording artists and professional musicians to perform clinics in a small-to-medium sized audience where you have the opportunity to ask questions about the clinicians styles and techniques and also how to improve your own skill. The clinician may perform an entire piece, or demonstrate certain techniques for you to observe and learn.

We try to bring in a broad diversity of artists to cover all instruments and styles of music

Our clinics are held year round on Fridays and Saturdays from 5-7pm.

None at this time, but check back as we add clinics regularly!

In addition to Guitars Etc.’s successful lesson program, we offer Workshops where you can focus on a specific area of music over a series of educational sessions. Our Workshops are taught by professional musicians, both national and local. Each workshop will have a different focus, be it a specific style of music or even a technique.

One of our most popular annual Workshops is our Chop Shop where players can learn what it takes to become a “know-it-all” guitarist. If you’ve ever wanted to just sit in with other musicians or drop in on an open jam, this workshops will give you the tools to jam and communicate with other musicians. You won’t have to memorize songs to jam, just find out the key and start playing. You will learn to rip out screaming solos in any key and build your confidence to take on any song.

Workshops usually are held on Fridays and Saturdays from 5-7pm. 

None Scheduled at this time.
