Meet Your Maker: Bill Collings

Friday, December 5, 2014 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An Evening with Luthier and Guitar Visionary Bill Collings

As part of our ongoing Meet Your Maker series, The Music Emporium is proud to host Bill Collings for an intimate evening of spirited conversation. This will be Bill’s sixth visit to our store in the last twelve years and if past events are any indication, the evening will be quite entertaining, very informative, and indeed inspirational.

Join us for an in depth glimpse of the evolving culture & articulate prowess that Team Collings has developed – From their legendary acoustic guitars, to mandolins, electric guitars, and more recently ukuleles… Stealthy transitions that are the envy of production builders, all within a mere quarter century.

The hallmark of their success?.. Combining old school, bench-built tradition with modern day technology to create their signature voicing in every instrument they build.

Bill will talk about the life journey to building world class instruments, and walk us through their present-day facility with a detailed photo montage of the Collings workshop in Austin, Texas. They will discuss & demonstrate their technique, from selecting master grade tone woods, to voicing tops, and more. The night will conclude with open forum Q&A session, a rare opportunity you won’t want to miss.

Bill will also be in the shop on Saturday, December 6th, during our regular business hours.

Seating is limited – So make plans to attend, RSVP today

The event will be Friday, December 5th at 7PM. Doors will open at 6:45PM.  You may RSVP here.
