This custom Collings 12-fret 0 features one of the most beautiful German spruce tops we've ever seen in a guitar. The grain is moderately wide and there is some lovely bearclaw figuring in the top, too. This guitar is eight years old, and though it has been played a lot, it still looks fabulous. Best of all, its voice is articulate but rich, and it has more volume than its small size belies. 42-style appointments like an abalone rosette, torch peghead and snowflake inlays, ivoroid binding and a multi-color backstrip accent this beautiful little guitar. Included with the 03G is the original hardshell case.
