There is an incredible charm to a full-body Mahogany guitar, when done right they can be some of the purest and natural sounding guitars ever made. This custom order Collings Guitar 001 Custom Full-Body Mahogany walks the line between elegant and authentic.
Custom built for a wonderful customer of ours, this Collings features a couple "3 style" appointments. The Chevron backstrip is a beautiful and subtle touch that accents the abalone rosette, and the Adirondack Bracing gives this Mahogany guitar a louder voice than you would expect from this small body instrument. The rope top purfling feels familiar on Mahogany and the custom "no tongue brace" option frees up the top to vibrate more freely, giving you a boost of volume and overall tone. This Collings Guitar 001 Custom Full-Body Mahogany is a joy to play, and a wonder to hear. The natural woody sound combines with elegant appointments to create a one of a kind guitar ready to be played for many years.
