2017 Collings 01 12 Fret – £3599

NEW ARRIVAL  Collings has consistently hit the mark with its superb interpretations of classic flattop acoustics, and the 01 12 Fret is a loving tribute to the 0-size parlor guitars Martin introduced in the 1850s, long before larger instruments such as the orchestra and dreadnought took over. With a Sitka Spruce top and Honduras Mahogany back and sides, this guitar has custom ordered Adirondack bracing. There’s an Ebony fingerboard and pyramid bridge, with Waverley tuners, all adding up to classic, clean lines. Tonally this is one of the most perfectly balanced guitars I’ve played. It’s strong fundamental woodiness provides fantastic note separation and clarity, accented by just enough of the complexity and shimmer that Collings are known for. It’s a fingerpicker’s dream. The guitar is in excellent condition, with great playability, and comes in it’s original deluxe hard case.
