Collings 001 Mh Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 2012

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Collings 001 is based on a very traditional design that’s been a standard for over a century, and this example is built with Mahogany for the top, back and sides.  This fine guitar was built in Austin, Texas during 2012. Like every Collings we’ve seen, the build quality is exceptional, with excellent playability and great tone.

It is good condition, and we’d rate and price it higher except that there is some subtle finish marking, visible only from close up – from more than a foot away, it’s nearly impossible to see it and doesn’t really show in the photos.   It looks as if at some point the guitar was downwind from an aerosol that reacted with the finish surface, causing a slight pitting effect that will not buff out. The entire repair staff have examined this guitar, and agree that the finish looks stable; during summer, we sometimes see a related effect from exposure to DEET-based insect repellents, but those soften the finish. Here the finish has maintained its hardness.

This is a great playing, and sounding guitar. 

The original hard shell case is included.

Here’s what Collings has to say about their Model 00:

“We offer the 00 in its original, 12-fret configuration, a guitar shape that was first designed around the time of the Civil War. Its dimensions are similar to a typical classical guitar, with a slotted headstock and small pyramid bridge.

The comfortable size and timeless appearance of the Collings 00 is matched by the ease of playing a wide neck and shorter string scale affords. The tone is typically balanced and precise, and we’ve seen it adopted for a wide range of playing styles from simple vocal accompaniment to ragtime solos. When you want the durability of a modern guitar but one that appears rooted in an earlier, simpler time, the 00 is a versatile choice.”
