Gypsy Jazz Guitars
For the past three years, I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from Michael Collins. He is truly a master of the Selmer-Maccaferri style guitar, and he created a wonderful environment in which to learn and grow as a luthier. Michael Collins has relocated to Houston, TX, and he is missed by his Arizona friends. But fear not. Both Michael and I still build gypsy jazz guitars from our Phoenix and Houston areas, so look forward to a new and exciting future for Michael Collins guitars. Feel free to contact Michael or I for any information regarding a custom build, repair services, or parts.

Selmer-Maccaferri style Gypsy Jazz Guitars
Michael Collins graduated from the Roberto Venn School of Luthiery in 1992. He built Harpsichords and Fortepianos for the firm of Hubbard & Broekman Harpsichords in Boston for seven years before resuming his love for guitar building. He began making reproductions of Selmer-style instruments in 2002, and he wrote a book describing that process, which was published in 2006.
