Songwriters and performers looking for a smaller more comfortable guitar, look no further! With the exception of the Baby, the 0 is Collings' smallest guitar and is offered with the same shorter scale found on the 12-fret 00. Although measuring only 13.5 inches in width (smaller than a typical classical guitar), the Collings 0 has tone and volume that belies its first impression as being less than full-sized. It can double as a travel guitar or a small OM, performing both roles equally well.
Built with the timeless sitka spruce & indian rosewood tonewood combination; this guitar can get a loud, defined and punchy sound with little to no effort. The trebles are sparkly and the lows and powerful; all of this wrapped into a tiny O style body. Sometimes I guess you can get what you want!
