❌SOLD❌ Collings 01 Steel String Sunburst Guitar, 2014


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

The Collings 01 is based on the small body ‘single 0’ design introduced by C F Martin around 1898, and still a popular model in several trim and material grades. The 01 roughly maps to the 0-18, classed as a ‘Parlor Guitar’.

Following a traditional pattern, the Collings 01 is built using a combination of a top grade Sitka Spruce top and braces, Mahogany for the rest of the body and neck, and Ebony for the head plate, fingerboard and bridge. Decoration is simple, with the Collings logo and dot position markers in Mother of Pearl. The body is bound with faux Tortoise, matching the teardrop pickguard.   Collings finishes are uniformly excellent, and here the vintage sunburst is very attractive. 

Here we’re looking at a Colling 01 built during 2014 at the Collings shop in Austin, Texas. It’s in great condition with quite light wear, mostly visible as fingermarks on the pickguard.

The original Collings hard shell case is included.

More From The Builder On The Collings 01:

“With the exception of the Baby, the 0 is our smallest guitar and is offered with the same shorter scale found on the 12-fret 00. Although measuring only 13.5 inches in width (smaller than a typical classical guitar), the Collings 0 has tone and volume that belies its first impression as being less than full-sized. It can double as a travel guitar or a small OM, performing both roles equally well.

The same neck and woods options offered with larger Collings models are available on the 0 as well, giving players an almost infinite range of tonal possibilities.”
