Collings O2HBRA Adirondack and Brazilian Rosewood ID-5869
Collings O2HBRA Adirondack and Brazilian Rosewood
It’s been more than several years since Collings has built Brazilian guitars for their broader group of authorized dealers. We are pleased to announce a very limited run of new Brazilian model Collings – possibly their last.
It is our privilege to introduce this limited run of Brazilian models with our Collings 02H, featuring an Adirondack Red Spruce sound board, Adirondack forward shifted bracing, and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The Collings Crew continues to amaze us with their challenge of building a small bodied guitar yet with such a powerful voice.
Insiders know, ever since Artisan Guitars became a Collings dealer we have been champions of the Collings “0” model as one of the most delightfully surprising guitars in their catalog. So much fun they should be illegal, these guitars always bring a smile to an unsuspecting new acquaintance.
This guitar has the responsiveness of a small bodied guitar, yet the volume and clarity of a large body guitar. The first thing that you will notice about this guitar is its impressive bass response that belies its small stature. The Adirondack spruce bracing helps to further stiffen the top, adding lighting fast note response to your individual lines.
Brazilian Rosewood combines the attributes of the two most common back and side woods, Indian Rosewood, and Mahogany. Brazilian has the ability to provide lushness of Indian Rosewood, while never sacrificing the individual note clarity you get from Mahogany. This guitar is a recording engineer’s dream! All of this is wrapped up in a guitar that you will feel comfortable sitting on the couch playing for hours, recording on music row, or playing on any stage. Simply, yet elegantly appointed, this is a true family heirloom for generations to come.
Should you have interest in future Brazilian models from Collings, please give us a call or send us an email… We are currently taking reservations for the limited number of guitars we may be allocated within this special run.
