Bill Collings Memorial Fund

The Bill Collings Memorial Fund was established in loving memory of Bill who died July 14, 2017; he was the creative force behind Collings Guitars for over 40 years. Through Bill's unique and innate understanding of how things work, and how to make things work better, he set a high bar and touched many lives in the process. His skill and incredible sense of design were not limited to working with wood, but evident in his passion for building hot rods. To Bill, the design and execution of elegant form and function 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.
