If I had to choose one acoustic guitar, it would be a 14-fret 00 … plenty of volume and low end, but small enough to be comfortable on the couch and on the stage. ┬áThis is a gently used example of Collings’ take on it. Beautiful build with Collings’ Traditional package, including an ultra thin nitro finish, short scale, with a 1 3/4 bone nut, pre-war scalloped X bracing, traditional carve neck, ebony fretboard and bridge. So good. The short scale makes it a delight to play. Hope it stays around a while, I will miss it when it’s gone. Serial # 30951

Collings says:

Our new 00 14-Fret series finds the sweet spot between small and mid-sizedinstruments while bringing to the table a distinctive voice and character all its own. ThisTraditional Series variation represents our vintage-inspired approach to voicing and construction, which brings out a strong fundamental tonality and dry articulation with warmer high-end response. The ultra-thin nitrocellulose lacquer and lightweight build provide added nuance and responsiveness, making for an exceptionally dynamic and versatile instrument that shines in a variety of playing styles.
