Collings 001Mh Mahogany with
The dimensions of Collings' 001mh are similar to the original design first introduced around the Civil War. The comfortable 12 Fret 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 of a typical 00 is balanced and precise, and we've seen it adopted for a wide range of playing styles from the singer/songwriter fair to ragtime solos - but it really sings when used for fingerstyle. With this in mind, we ordered this guitar with a few custom features with the discerning fingerstylist in mind.
This gorgeous Collings OO1 Mh features a Mahogany top combined with Mahogany back and sides. This is an absolutely wonderful sounding instrument. The Mahogany top provides for more sustain, slower attack, as you would expect from a heavier top. Mahogany tops make for a friendly, sweet guitar that does not amplify mistakes.
The Mahogany back and sides are perfect for players who find rosewood too boomy. Lead players will appreciate the enhanced note definition and clarity, especially through the midrange frequencies.
This guitar excels at fingerstyle playing while also providing great projection and depth when strummed and flatpicked. The all-mahogany construction provides a clear, woody, dry and airy tone that is very balanced and smooth thanks to the masterful voicing.
This instrument is, in our opinion, perfectly appointed. The body is bound with tortoise style bindings, with a tortoise pickguard and finished off with a high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and custom Rope purfling. Additionally, the Slotted headstock and Nickel Waverly Tuners top off a classy, elegant instrument.
The 001 Mh model offers a welcome alternative for those looking for a smaller guitar that really separates itself from all the rest!
This instrument is in Excellent + Condition with only some light pick scratches on the pickguard.
Includes Hardshell Case.
