Collings 03M Maple 12 String with Sitka Spruce and Maple
With the exception of the Baby, the "0" is Collings smallest guitar and is offered with the same 24 7/8" 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 new 12-fret 0 body size 12 string features an elegant slotted peghead, 1 7/8" nut width, and comfortable 24 7/8" scale length. It features a Abalone rosette, Tortoise style top/back/fretboard and peghead binding, Black/white wood purfling with 3-style backstrip and custom Maple back and sides.
While 12 string guitars might be considered an addition weapon in a players arsenal, this could easily become your "Go To" guitar. With the nut width measuring 1 7/8" in combination with the single 0 body style allows for a truly intimate and inspiring playing experience.
The tone of this instrument is punchy and incredibly powerful with virtually unlimited headroom. It has incredible sustain and tremendous overtones which you could hear from the next state. This guitar will leave you wanting to play all day.
