Collings Guitars 002H 14-Fret


The newest acoustic body size offered by Collings, the 00 14-Fret Series finds the sweet spot between a small-bodied and mid-sized instrument while bringing to the table a distinctive voice and character all its own.

Upon picking up the guitar, it doesn't take more than a few strums to reveal a pleasing midrange resonance that distinguishes this size from other offerings. This fullness of tone is complemented by dry and articulate attack, with more low-end definition than you’d typically expect to find in an instrument of this size. The shorter 24 7/8” scale length combined with a relatively broad waist allows for a more delicate top-voicing, producing an openness that’s equally suited for accentuating subtle nuances as it is for digging in on single-note runs.

The tonewood combination of Sitka Spruce and East Indian Rosewood is one that we order quite often here at Artisan Guitars. Whether you're finger-picking or strumming, you can't help but hear the sweet, (almost bell like) trebles when these two woods are used together!

All in all, the Collings Guitars 002H 14-fret Sitka and Rosewood is a highly versatile instrument that excels at a variety of playing styles from fingerstyle to strumming and anything in between.
