Materials: Solid bookmatched Adirondack spruce top; solid bookmatched figured mahogany back, sides, and neck; solid ebony fingerboard; solid ebony bridge with compensated bone saddle; Waverly nickel 16X1 butterbean tuners; swirl tortoise pickguard; inlaid bridgepins; tortoise body binding; hex-key adjustable truss rod.

Notes: Austin based Collings guitars are renowned for their meticulous craftsmanship and impeccable tone. The 0001 model is based on the early larger Martin 12 fret 000 body, with a graceful Venetian cutaway added for enhanced upper fret access. The solid ebony fingerboard has a generous 1 3/4" nut for finger or pick style play, and a solid peghead for easy re-stringing.

This gleaming guitar is fitted with an X-braced soundboard of fine grained quartersawn Adirondack (red) spruce, the lightest and strongest guitar topwood, and largely unavailable since the Second World War. Adirondack tops convey maximum dynamic range and headroom, and can be played vigorously without distortion. With a lightweight figured mahogany body, and solid ebony fingerboard and bridge, the guitar is graced with elegant tortoise binding and pickguard.

At barely 4lb, the guitar is phenomenally lightweight, and exquisitely balanced. The voice is strikingly resonant, with open, powerful bass and a sparkling upper register, ideal for either finger or pick style play. This gleaming example is in showroom condition, and is equipped with vintage style nickel Waverly 16X1 tuners, and an opulent Cedar Creek deluxe hardshell case.

A compelling blend of traditional and contemporary design from one of America's premier builders: one only, call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge bronze strings (.012-.054). The guitar will accommodate lighter strings, according to preference.

Case: Original deluxe black hardshell case with crushed velour lining.
