Collings 03 Maple 12 Fret with Sitka Spruce and Maple ID-7671


Collings Maple 03 12 Fret with Sitka Spruce and Maple

With the exception of the Baby, the 0 is our smallest guitar and is offered with the same shorter scale found on the 12-fret 00. Although measuring only 13.5 inches in width (smaller than a typical classical guitar), the Collings 0 has tone and volume that belies its first impression as being less than full-sized. This instrument features a Sitka Spruce top combined with custom Maple back and sides. The Collings Maple chosen for these instrument is absolutely gorgeous and sounds phenomenal. Maple is especially warm in tone, quite different than you would expect a maple guitar to sound like. Collings always does exquisite things with their woods and this guitar fits the bill visually and sonically.

It can double as a travel guitar or a small OM, performing both roles equally well. The same neck and woods options offered with larger Collings models are available on the 0 as well, giving players an almost infinite range of tonal possibilities.

Sitka is very lush and has a warm, rich low end. It is ideal for flatpickers who don't require the stiffness of Adirondack, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch.

Thank you Brian Clark for the sound file contribution.
