The 12-fret 000 has the same general appearance as the Collings 00, but in a larger size with longer string scale. Although it's the same width and depth as the OM, the longer body typically produces more bass and overall volume. This makes the Collings 000 ideal for string-band purists or any guitarist who wants a maximum of power from an instrument of comfortable size with an elegant, old-time appearance.
This 2007 0001MhSb features a custom Mahogany top as well as Mahogany back and sides. The beauty of Collings' mahogany tops is their open breath and incredible responsiveness. Overall, focus and clarity are the key qualities of this guitar. The top end has an incredible definition and brightness, without sacrificing or overpowering the mid-range. Really, the mid-range focus is what makes this guitar shine. It's perfect for Piedmont blues or folksy strumming. Alternate bass line fans rejoice, for the bass response on this one is gorgeously well defined!
This custom ordered Collings 000 has a beautiful Full body sunburst, with a Tortoise bound Fretboard, as well as Tortoise bound Peghead. Some other features of this Collings 0001 include Pre-war scalloped bracing, ebony fingerboard and pyramid bridge, Slotted Headstock, and a M.O.P. Collings logo inlay on the headstock.
This Collings 0001MhSb is in excellent condition.

A K & K Pure Mini pickup has been installed on the guitar. Strap button has been professionally installed and it includes the Original Hardshell Case.
