Two Of The Same But Not

Collings Guitars Largest Electric and Acoustic Dealer West Of The Mississippi.

Hill Country Guitars is located in the Heart of Texas. We are a short 25-minute drive from where Collings makes their beautiful guitars and instruments. We go by the Collings facility a few times each week to pick up new instruments. Visit us to browse the largest inventory of Collings instruments in Texas.

One of our customers had two guitars built just the same. OM3 Collings, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top. Even since they are built the same and from the same woods the sound is a little different.

Huttlinger Signiture Guitar

They Have Arrived Huttlinger Guitars In Stock


We are proud to introduce the limited edition Pete Huttlinger Signature OM1

Pete Huttlinger is recognized around the world as one of the greatest fingerstyle guitar players of our time. His amazing ability to play melody, harmony, rhythm and everything in between has long captivated fans and fellow musicians alike. Pete bought his first Collings in March of 1997. Over the years, he has continually supported and promoted Collings instruments and, in the process, has become a great friend.Pete has a congenital heart defect and has become extremely ill during the past year. He suffered a massive stroke last fall and then underwent major heart surgery in May. This procedure left him with a mechanical pump implanted in his heart, requiring him to carry a battery pack at all times. He is now gaining strength and is awaiting a heart transplant. Our prayers and heartfelt wishes are with him and his wife Erin.

For decades, his beautiful playing and warm spirit have uplifted many hearts. Now, we would like to give something back. In his honor, we are proud to introduce the limited edition "Pete Huttlinger Signature OM1" model. We will limit the number built to 50 and each of these special guitars will have a custom signed and numbered label.

The Pete Huttlinger model is an OM1 Cutaway with Pete's signature elegantly inlaid in the 12th fret. We'll be offering the guitar in both Sitka and Adirondack top versions to reflect Pete's two main touring guitars (details and pricing are below). To help Pete and Erin with their astronomical medical costs, we will donate $1,000 from each guitar sold. To accomplish this, we ask that the dealer donate $500, over their standard cost, and Collings will also donate $500. Any additional donations can be made to the Pete Huttlinger medical fund through his website at www.petehuttlinger.com.

To reserve your limited addition Pete Huttlinger give us a call (512.847.8677) or email (info@hillcountryguitars.com)

Four Deep Body OMs

Four Deep Body Collings OM Style Guitars Recorded At Relentless Records Studio. I would like to thank Jeff Strahan for coming to the studio and helping us out. You can find him playing in many places. Check out his schedule, go see him and let him know you saw these videos.(jeffstrahan.com ) Each guitar was recorded with two microphones at ear level of the player just behind the guitar. This captures the sound that the player is hearing, or as close as we can get. Enjoy
