2013 Pre Owned Collings 002H E Englemann Spruce and Indian Rosewood
The Collings 00 series guitars produce tone that is balanced and precise... from simple vocal accompaniment to fingerpicking to ragtime solos, this guitar is well suited for a wide variety of playing styles. The 00 is a guitar shape that was first designed around the time of the Civil War to keep up with the louder banjos and mandolins of the time. The comfortable size and timeless appearance of the 00 is matched by the ease of playing that a wider neck and shorter string scale afford.
This 002H E features a custom Englemann Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood back and sides. This is a powerful combination of tonewoods that produces a rich, full sound. Englemannn Spruce is a perfect topwood for many playing styles, in that it is stiff enough to flatpick while soft enough for fingerstyle players as well. When combined with rosewood back and sides, bass is rich and full with natural reverb like overtones.
Custom appointments include 2 3/16 pyramid bridge and a custom nut width of 1 3/4" for those who find the standard 1 13/16" a bit too wide for their playing style.
This guitar is very responsive and will suit the needs of fingerstyle players very well. The Englemann top can also take an impressive amount of flatpicking, though the 00 body size is more suited to players with a lighter touch. Tone is very clear with a vibrant and pleasant high end and just enough lows to balance the tone across the fretboard.
This Pre Owned 2013 Collings 002H E Englemann Spruce and Indian Rosewood is in excellent + condition with no wear to mention. It includes the original hardshell case.
