This is a stunning example of a rare beauty from Collings, a 0002H built in Koa for top, back and sides with all the detail and refined features you would expect from the team in Austin, Texas.
This quintessential 000 is an inspired blend of vintage stylings in both visuals and tone, as well as the contemporary and versatile characteristics that feel so distinctly Collings. With lovely detailing in the purfling, rosette and back strip, the exceptional natural figuring of the Koa feels right at with these deluxe appointments.
Sonically the guitar has a silky, well rounded tone with the telltale sweetness to the midrange and trebles that a great set of Koa will impart. As one would expect from Collings, the guitar is highly responsive and reacts with a lively and rich character on both the softer and louder ends of its dynamic range.
The playability is superb, with the 1 13/16" nut width and 25.5" scale providing a snappy and easily navigated terrain for a host of finger style applications and even more intense flat-picking styles.
The guitar is in great condition and comes in its original Collings Hardcase.
