The comfortable size and timeless appearance of the Collings 00 is matched by the ease of playing a wide neck and shorter string scale. The tone is balanced and precise, and we here at Artisan have 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.
Custom made as a full body mahogany guitar. This beautiful 00 shines in fingerstyle and strumming. As a picking guitar the notes are direct and punchy, typical of Collings' mahogany guitar construction. This guitar also shines as a strummer, coming off with mid range clarity and a folky Singer Songwriter tone! The custom rope purfling really lets the top pop out, and the beautiful grain of the mahogany is sure to catch everyone's eye!
