Pre-Owned 2012 Collings 02HG Guitar German Spruce and Indian Rosewood ID-6085
Pre Owned Collings 02HG 2012 German Spruce and Indian Rosewood
With the exception of the Baby, the 0 is the smallest guitar from Collings 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. The same neck and woods options offered with larger Collings models are available on the 0 as well, giving players an almost infinite range of tonal possibilities.
Collings Single 0 series guitars are always highly impressive, projecting an almost unbelievable sound that is full of low end with an overall tone that is focused, powerful, and highly responsive. This 02HG is no different.
German Spruce, a special appointment on this guitar, provides a rich, complex tone and is the perfect topwood for many players who play fingerstyle as well as flatpick. German Spruce is stiffer than Sitka, providing more headroom and power, yet more flexible than Adirondack so that it responds well to a lighter attack.
Other appointments include a custom nut width of 1 3/4" for those who find the standard 1 11/16" a bit too narrow for their playing style.
This guitar is very responsive and will suit the needs of fingerstyle players very well. The German top can also take an impressive amount of flatpicking, though the 0 body size is more suited to an intimate playing experience. Tone is very clear with a vibrant and pleasant high end and just enough lows to balance the tone across the fretboard.
