Pre Owned 2014 Collings Custom 003 G German Spruce and Indian Rosewood Guitar with Adirondack Bracing
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 typically 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 00 is a versatile choice.
This Custom Collings OO3 G features a custom German Spruce top, East Indian Rosewood back and sides, a solid Mahogany neck, and Ebony fingerboard and bridge and custom Adirondack Bracing.
This German Spruce top 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.
The gorgeous set of Indian Rosewood on the back and sides broadens out the dynamic range, bringing overtone rich low-end and mellow yet defined trebles. When fingerpicking, each note is rich and warm, yet well defined and easily articulated.
The custom Adirondack Braces are lighter and stiffer than Sitka, therefore they are more responsive and offer a more efficient transfer of energy through the top.
This guitar boasts the projection and tonal clarity Collings is known for, while still maintaining a good measure of warmth on the bottom end. 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.
This Pre Owned 2014 Collings Custom 003 G German Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Adirondack Bracing SKU-9424 is in excellent condtion with only a few very minor surface scratches. It has minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
