Collings 03 SS Sitka Spruce & Indian Rosewood
With the exception of the Baby, the 0 is Collings' smallest guitar and this custom model comes 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.
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.
This guitar features a Sitka Spruce top combined with Indian Rosewood back and sides. This combination is favorable for many playing styles as it offers the most versatility in regards to heavy or light playing. Rosewood offers a lush, rich tone with lots of reverberation like properties and a full low end. Sitka can be played fingerstyle or with a flatpick and can excel at both.
Sitka is ideal for flatpickers who don't require the stiffness of Adirondack, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch. When combined with rosewood on the back and sides, Sitka is very lush and has a warm, rich low end.
The lack of tongue brace built into the guitar allows the top to vibrate more and easier, allowing for louder volume and more pronounced tone!
