The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Collings 0002H Steel String Natural, 1999


Instrument Categories: ,

The Collings 0002H is a 12-fret neck model combining the larger 000 size Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood body with a fairly long 25.5 inch (647.7mm) scale length.

Here we’re looking at a well preserved Collings 0002H, built during October of 1999 at the Collings shop in Austin, Texas. The 000 body design dates to 1902, and has clearly proven its worth. Collings pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back, with the top surrounded with Herringbone purfling. The neck is Mahogany, with Ebony for the fingerboard, pyramid-style bridge, and head plate.

Typical of other instruments from this shop, this Collings 0002H guitar is exceptionally well built in every sense. While there is evidence of light use, with quite light fret wear, it is in very good clean condition. It plays well, and sounds great with very good representation throughout the frequency range. This guitar has an L R Baggs I-Beam pickup and preamp installed, with the battery pack affixed to the interior, upper bass back.

The original Collings branded arched top hard shell case, built by TKL, is included and is in as clean condition as the guitar itself.

More From The Builder On The Collings 0002H 12 fret Guitar:

“The 12-fret 000 has the same general appearance as the Collings 00, but in a larger size with longer string scale. Although it’s the same width and depth as the OM, the longer body typically produces more bass and overall volume. This makes the Collings 0002H ideal for string-band purists or any guitarist who wants a maximum of power from an instrument of comfortable size with an elegant, old-time appearance. Along with the usual options in woods, binding, and inlay , it is also available with a graceful cutaway.”
