Collings 002H 14 Fret Steel String Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Collings 002H 14 Fret delivers one of the finest medium-body guitar experiences available, pairing Sitka Spruce with Indian Rosewood for a detailed, rich tone.

Collings guitars exhibit a consistently high level of build and finish quality. In the world of production guitars, it’s hard to think of anything better built, and that can be extended to custom guitar builds as well. These guitars are pretty much as good as it gets.

Here we’re looking at a brand new Collings 002H 14 Fret model. The 00 design dates back to 1898 at the C F Martin plant in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, and many builders and players have recognized its strengths. The smaller body is comfortable and portable, yet produces enough volume for performance. The tone is described by Collings in the quotes below.

This guitar is sold with its original hard shell case.

Here is the builder on the Collings 002H 14 Fret Model:

“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. “
