This Collings 002H Acoustic, serial# 23452, delivers superb tone, classic looks and exceptional playability in a pristine guitar. Its comfortable 00 12 fret size and full, clear tone make it an excellent guitar suited to all types of music and playing styles, whether its flatpicking, strumming or fingerstyle. It has a select Sitka Spruce top paired with East Indian Rosewood back and sides for a robust, rich and lively tone. The Mahogany neck with a Modified V profile and a generous 1 13/16" nutwidth is comfortable and particularly nice for classical and fingerstyle players.
Balanced and precise, the tone of the 002H is simply remarkable, and is a beautiful accompaniment for vocalists too. It has a slightly shorter 24 7/8" scale and 2 5/16" string spacing making it a real joy to play. The Herringbone trim and matching two-style backstrip look great spectacular, as does the Ebony pyramid-style bridge, and mother-of-pearl diamond and square fretboard inlays. The Collings 002H is one of our favorites here, and brings together real playability, dynamic tone and a vintage vibe. A Collings hardshell case and full setup to your specs are included.
