A year ago this past week we lost one of the greatest luthiers of all time and one of the most inspiring people I ever had the chance to meet. Bill Collings was an incredible person. He displayed that when you find your passion, go full bore and have fun doing it and you'll live a fulfilling life. His energy was contagious and he built a community and culture at Collings Guitars where his passion got into the blood of everyone around him. His enthusiasm and drive carry on at Collings Guitars.
Watch this short film about how his memory is carried on at Collings as well as the second video to get a sense of who Bill Collings was.
