Product Description

Collings 001 14-Fret Mahogany Top

Here we have an absolutely stunning 001 14-Fret from Collings with an immaculate Honduran Mahogany top. Being shrouded in Mahogany gives this 00 a wonderfully dry, earthy tone that remains prominent in fundamental notes and has so much string separation when playing complex chords that each string might as well have its own zip code. In my opinion, this makes for the perfect guitar for solo singer/singwriter applications as it compliments the voice very well without overpowering the vocal performance. This will also make for an invaluable studio tool for those takes when you need absolute precision from every note. This 001 is yet another testament to Collings never ending pursuit of quality and excellence in the world of Luthiery. 

Here is what Collings has to say about it: As our newest acoustic body size, the 00 14-Fret Series finds the sweet spot between a small-bodied and mid-sized instrument while bringing to the table a distinctive voice and character all its own. Upon picking up the guitar, it doesn't take more than a few strums to reveal a pleasing midrange resonance that distinguishes this size from other offerings. This fullness of tone is complemented by dry and articulate attack with more low-end definition than you’d typically expect to find in an instrument of this size. The shorter 24 7/8” scale length combined with a relatively broad waist allows for a more delicate top-voicing, producing an openness that’s equally suited for accentuating subtle nuances as it is for digging in on single-note runs. All in all, the 00 14-fret is a highly versatile instrument that excels at a variety of playing styles from fingerstyle to strumming and anything in between.
