The 12-fret 000 has the same general appearance as the Collings 00, but in a larger size with longer string scale. Although it's the same width and depth as the OM, the longer body typically produces more bass and overall volume. This makes the Collings 000 ideal for string-band purists or any guitarist who wants a maximum of power from an instrument of comfortable size with an elegant, old-time appearance. Along with the usual options in woods, binding, and inlay.
This fingerstyle powerhouse has all the thump you want for all the chet style train songs around! The sitka top combines with indian rosewood for a wider frequency response with singing overtones; whether you're playing a ballad or uptempo classic! The custom 1 3/4" nut width gives versatility when playing, definitely a strong middle ground between strumming and fingerstyle!
