The 12-fret 00 design originated around the time of the Civil War, but Collings brings it into the 21st century with their peerless modern craftsmanship. The 12-fret configuration brings a power and gutsiness to the small body size, and the classic Sitka and Indian rosewood combo ensure a balanced, well-rounded tone that works in a variety of genres. Elevated to the nines with 42-style abalone top purfling around the perimeter and fretboard, ivoroid binding on body and fretboard, lush sunburst, and vintage-inspired pyramid bridge and slotted headstock, this is one beautiful little guitar. This 2006 model is in really excellent condition, with the light whorls that give away prior handling, but no notable scratches or dings.
