This Collings 042 ABr 12 Fret acoustic guitar is a revelation – a small bodied (24 7/8” scale) Collings 03 player with a sound that will knock your socks off and classic looks to match. Fingerstyle players and strummers will both appreciate the power the Adirondack top brings, coupled with the exceptional Brazilian back and sides. Everything about this guitar is A+, from the tone and playability to the fantastic appointments including a spectacular torch peghead inlay, 45 style snowflake fretboard inlay and 42 style abalone top border.

It's just jawdroppingly beautiful. What it comes down to though is the sound and this is simply as good as it gets with presence, warmth and clarity. You've got the pyramid bridge, generous string spacing at 2 5/16" with a 1 13/16" nutwidth, bone saddle and nut, and of course Collings' high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. This Collings 042 ABr 12 Fret is a special one. A Collings deluxe hard case is included.
