Collings Baby 2 German and Wenge 2016

Collings smallest model is a rarity among fractional size guitars: most listeners never guess that it's not a full-size instrument unless they see it being played. The Collings Baby is approximately a 3/4 size version of their OM, 12 1/2 inches wide in the lower bout with a 24 1/8 inch scale, and the headstock and bridge are scaled to match. Sometimes the Baby is used as a travel guitar, but it often sees duty as a songwriter's tool, the guitar that's ready at a moment's notice and can be played while seated in any position.

These Baby models are always some of our personal favorites when they come through the door. We find the tone to be quite large compared to what we expected out of such a small guitar. The low end is remarkable, even on par with many of the single and 00 models we see come through the shop. This is a guitar you can sit and play for hours on end without fatigue, thanks to the small profile and short-scale length. It's almost impossible to put down and offers many creative possibilities that you may not come up with on larger guitars.

The German Spruce top is highly responsive and can handle flatpicking quite well with a clear, focused, and round tone, although the guitar practically begs to be played fingerstyle with notes that seem to leap from the small sound cavity of this baby all the way up the neck. Couple this with a Wenge back/sides and you'll get a powerful guitar with deep lower mid range and a lively high end with sweet overtones!

This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ only 1 light ding on the headstock (see photos) and some scratches on the pickguard. There is also some light finish sinking throughout the the entire instrument.
