Collings 01 Custom VN, Mahogany & Sitka Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


Everything you love about Collings guitars, but scaled down, and made even better by some custom appointments and upgrades! The slight size of the 0, with its 13-7/16" lower bout and 4" depth, makes for the perfect couch, songwriting, and travel guitar that doesn't sacrifice tone and playability. Mahogany's strong midrange and woody bite are balanced out by torrefied Sitka spruce's warmth and roundedness—a perfect combo for a small-bodied instrument. This special custom 01 VN features the chunkier Vintage Now neck profile, and don't miss that abalone rosette, rope purfling, and torch inlay on the headstock. This pre-owned model is in excellent condition with just a few light finish scratches on the back, and its original TKL hard case.
