Collings 01 12 Fret guitars are a joy to play. With softer contours and a longer body dimension than an 0 14-Fret model, the 0 12-Fret has a balanced and full tone with slightly more bass and overall volume. This Collings O1 has a Sitka Spruce top which gives this guitar more intricate tone without being as stiff as Adirondack. You'll get more velocity control on the low end and still be able to drive the top a little bit before the tone starts breaking up.
The Sitka top compliments the Mahogany Back and Sides very well. Mahogany guitars have great note definition, dry and crisp. It also features a comfortable short 24 7/8" scale, a 1 13/16"Nut Width and 2 5/16" string spacing at the bridge, this model is a perfect choice for the finger-stylist aficionado.
This guitar is perfect for travel or sitting on the couch. Perfect to take to songwriting sessions, recording studios, or to the stage.
