Collings 001 - 12 Fret Mahogany Acoustic Guitar With 1.75" Nut

    Keep It Civil By Design With The Collings 001 - 12 Fret Mahogany Acoustic Guitar With 1.75" Nut. Collings offers the 00 in its original, 12-fret configuration, a guitar shape that was first designed around the time of the Civil War.

    Its dimensions are similar to a typical classical guitar, with a slotted headstock and small pyramid bridge. The comfortable size and timeless appearance of the Collings 00 is matched by the ease of playing a wide neck and shorter string scale affords. The tone is typically balanced and precise, and we've seen it adopted for a wide range of playing styles from simple vocal accompaniment to ragtime solos. When you want the durability of a modern guitar but one that appears rooted in an earlier, simpler time, the 00 is a versatile choice.

    From the starting point of the wood's density and rigidity, each acoustic guitar top is hand selected, evaluated, and carved to it's own unique thickness, maximizing the tonal potential of each top. Each Collings acoustic guitar, from their most affordable to the highest end, are built with the finest tonewoods available. Each wood is acquired, acclimated and hand selected by master luthiers at their shop who pick each component with the whole tonality of the end instrument in mind. A combination of PLEK leveling and hand fret dressing insures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel. Premium Waverly open gear tuners offer exceptional tuning stability and smooth reliable operation. Tortoise shell binding compliments the warm hues of a mahogany back and sides. A pairing of Sitka spruce with a Honduran mahogany back and sides creates a guitar with a crisp yet warm articulation and a beautiful tonal balance.
