Though small, the Collings Baby 1 is still mighty. Measuring at about 3/4 of the size of Collings’ OM style guitars, the Baby makes a great travel guitar and is a songwriter’s secret weapon. Hand-selected and hand-voiced Sitka spruce top and walnut back and sides come together to create a guitar that has a tone that is surprisingly balanced for such a small guitar, with a clear, focused, and responsive sound that has enough volume for most situations. Its small profile, modified V neck, and shorter scale length make it effortless to play for hours on end. These features, paired with a classic rosette and rope style purfling, make the Collings Baby 1 ideal for both fingerstyle players and flatpickers looking for a travel-sized songwriting guitar that inspires creativity.
