Collings offers the 00 in its original, 12-fret configuration, a guitar shape that was first designed around the time of the Civil War. Its dimensions are similar to a typical classical guitar, with a slotted headstock and small pyramid bridge. The comfortable 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 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.
A finger stylist's most trusted Ally, the 00 size guitars rooted in single note melodic runs or punchy solo leads. The slotted headstock angle helps notes bounce off the fretboard and the wider nut width separates the strings for more muscle memory precision! The custom baked sitka top provides an open and "broken in" tone to a brand new instrument combined with the mahogany you'll get a punchy, warm mid range tone perfect for fitting into a mix.
