Collings 0002h Acoustic Guitar with torrefied spruce top.
Serial Number: 28539
The 12-fret 000 has the same general appearance as the Collings 00, but in a larger size with longer string scale. Although it’s the same width and depth as the OM, the longer body typically produces more bass and overall volume. This makes the Collings 000 ideal for string-band purists or any guitarist who wants a maximum of power from an instrument of comfortable size with an elegant, old-time appearance. Along with the usual options in woods, binding.
From the starting point of the wood’s density and rigidity, each acoustic guitar top is hand selected, evaluated, and carved to its own unique thickness; maximizing the tonal potential of each top.
Each Collings acoustic guitar, from our most affordable model to the highest end, are built with the finest tonewoods available. Each wood is acquired, acclimated, and hand selected by master luthiers here at our shop who pick each component with the whole tonality of the end instrument in mind.
A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.
By meticulously hand-sanding between coats, our nitrocellulose lacquer finishes measure between .005 and .007 inches in final thickness, maximizing acoustical response while providing excellent protection and aesthetics.
Premium Waverly open-gear tuners offer exceptional tuning stability and smooth reliable operation with a vintage aesthetic.
Herringbone purflings with ivoroid body bindings are a distinctive feature of our 2-style acoustics. A herringbone and tortoise rosette complete the traditional aesthetic.
Our 12-fret slot headstock guitars feature a comfortable Modified V neck profile with a 1 13/16 inch nut width and 2 5/16 inch string spacing as standard, making them well suited to fingerstyle playing techniques.
