PreOwned Collings 02 12 Fret German and Wenge Guitar 2014
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. 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 Collings 02 is no different!
This guitar features a German Spruce Top paired with a Wenge Back and Sides. This guitar is very responsive and will suit the needs of fingerstyle players very well. The German Spruce top can also take an impressive amount of flatpicking, though the 0 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.
Wenge belongs to a group of heavy species with relatively high hardness and provides with bright sound,with the highest frequencies are limited by the presence of natural oil compounds. However, this does not affect the attack, which is exceptionally well defined.
This guitar features a goreous list of appointments including, German Spruce top, Wenge Back and Sides, Rope Purfling, Custom Rosettte and a 1 3/4" Nut Width.
This Pre-Owned 2014 Collings 02 German and Wenge Guitar is in Great Condition with only a few minor surface scratches and two small dings on the top as well as a bit of button rash on the back of the guitar. There is also some light surface scratching on the pickguard. We have attempted to capture these in the detailed photos below.
Includes Original Hardshell Case.
