MELBOURNE GUITAR SHOW
The exceptional Waterloo series, handmade by Collings Guitars. Although they may look similar, each one of these guitars are braced differently for a different voicing. If you're after that 'just hopped a train' depression-era old school tone, these are the guitars for you. (L-R) WL-14XTR, WL-12, WL-14TR. 🇺🇸🇺🇸 . #waterlooguitars #waterloo #waterlooguitars #collings #handmade #boutiqueguitars #madeintexas #acoustic
Our customer of the day is Gareth Hughes. Life can be tough as a left-hander. Finding your dream guitar can be difficult when you can't try it first or it only exists as right-handed. Gareth decided to design his dream guitar himself. This is an absolutely stunning left-handed Santa Cruz H-13. It is built from classic Spruce/Mahogany tonewoods, along with some personalised specs such as dark body binding and a gorgeous sunburst. What can we say Gareth? It's a masterpiece. Congratulations!
Tasmanian based luthier, Allan Bull, builds world class classical guitars that are stunning in both tone and design. This is his latest creation - the CLE117 'Evo Model'.
