Collings Guitars 00 41 Style Jet Black Custom
Sublime artisan inlay features of abalone on full display, against the beautiful Jet Black finish, dark as night... This custom Collings 00 41 is truly an heirloom quality instrument showcasing the masterful skills developed over their 45 years of ingenuity at Collings Guitars.
The 00 body in its original 12-fret configuration, features dimensions that were first designed around the time of the Civil War. Guitars of that era simulate classical guitars, typically with a slotted peghead and pyramid bridge. Beyond the similarities of vintage esthetics, this small body Collings sports a uniquely robust voicing from hand carved X-bracing and tone bars.
The comfortable size and timeless appearance of the Collings 00 is matched by the ease of playing a modified "V" neck profile and shorter string scale affords. The tone is typically balanced and precise, and we've seen it adopted for a wide range of playing styles from simple vocal accompaniment to ragtime solos. When you want the durability of a modern guitar but one that appears rooted in an earlier, simpler time, the 00 is a versatile choice.
The bridge location on their 12-fret 00 model has less overlap of "bridge to X brace", placing the bridge in a sweet spot on the soundboard. Expect an enhanced bass register to accompany the signature Collings bell-like trebles we so love.
The custom appointments on this beautiful 00 go on and on, with a 2-Style backstrip, 1 3/4" nut width, solid peghead, Abalone peghead purfling (border), 41 style Abalone top purfling, hand inlaid Tree of Life Fingerboard pattern of Abalone, matching Abalone Vine Peghead Inlay & Abalone Rosette, and a beautiful Jet Black Finish.
"Built from the sound up" is their motto. Only built to order, bench-built and handcrafted in Austin, Texas - where every guitar is unique and special!
