Collings 01SB w/ Sunburst Top

When we ordered two small bodied Collings 01s, little did we know that Tommy Emmanuel would be picking one up and adding this fine guitar to his considerable collection of instruments. We still can’t get over just how much projection and volume these little darlins’ kick out! This one is no exception, an ample voice in a little body. Collings guitars have always been highly regarded for their signature tone and their ever-apparent high quality construction.

With the exception of the Baby, the 0 is Collings’ smallest guitar and is offered with the same shorter scale found on the 12-fret 00. Measuring only 13.5 inches in width, the Collings 0 has tone and volume that belies its first impression as being less than full-sized. The focused, crisp tone lends itself perfectly to country style fingerpicking and down-trodden blues alike. The Sitka top is a bit more mellow and rounded than it’s 01ASB Adirondack sibling, but certainly a welcome addition for lighter attack and bare fingers. Fingerstyle players with a discriminating touch will love the shimmering highs of this particular single 0. Small bodied aficionados may rethink their love of 000's and 00's after playing one of these guitars. The top is appointed with Colling’s always favored Style 1 sunburst, and the ebony fretboard has a 1-3/4" nut width rather than the standard 1-11/16th.

Living up to the standards Collings’ has established for themselves, this one makes us proud to be a Collings dealer.
