Pre Owned 2013 Collings 001MC Sitka Spruce and Mountain Cedar ID-7191
Pre Owned 2013 Collings 001MC Sitka Spruce and Mountain Cedar
The topwood on this guitar is Sitka Spruce, which is very versatile and known for it's lush bass response and easy playability. The back and sides are Mountain Cedar. Mountain Cedar "Spanish Cedar" is also know as Cedrela Montana.
It is harvested from managed timber forest concession in Peru. There is no clear cutting and it does not come from plantations. It is dense and solid and has all the qualities of traditional Spanish Cedar but, unlike it’s cousin, this cedar species does not ooozz sap from it’s pores.
This high elevation species has spectacular color, quality and stability.Collings' offers the 00 in its original, 12-fret configuration, a guitar shape that was first designed around the time of the Civil War. Its dimensions are similar to a typical classical guitar, with a slotted headstock and small pyramid bridge.
The comfortable size and timeless appearance of the Collings 00 is matched by the ease of playing a wide neck and shorter string scale affords. The tone is balanced and precise, and we've seen it adopted for a wide range of playing styles from simple vocal accompaniment to ragtime solos.
When you want the durability of a modern guitar but one that appears rooted in an earlier, simpler time, the Collings 00 is the perfect choice.
A surprising amount of low end means chords are rich and lush, balancing the clear high end of the Mountain Cedar back and sides quite nicely. This guitar is quite responsive whether played soft or loud... it maintains balance throughout the dynamic spectrum.
This instrument has numerous custom appointments including, the Spanish Cedar back and sides, Ivoroid binding on Mahogany, Abalone rosette, solid bound peghead and a 1 3/4" nut with which enables easier fingering of complex chord shapes.
This Pre Owned 2013 Collings 001MC Sitka Spruce and Mountain Cedar is in excellent + condition with little to no fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
