It is always a good day when a Collings shows up at the store… So, it is a good day!
This Collings 002HA-T Baked, like all Colling's fare - is glorious beast.
Take a gander, then get it home for a sonic experience to die for...
The Colling's Traditional Series variations of tjeir classic 12-fret 00 take a vintage-inspired approach to voicing and construction designed to produce a strong fundamental response and open feel, with rounder highs and less overtone complexity compared to the signature Collings sound. The combination of an open slotted peghead, shorter 24 7/8" scale length, and pyramid bridge paired with our ultra-thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish and newly redesigned neck support make for a woody and articulate voice that exemplifies everything we love about the T-Series. With a longer upper bout than its 14-fret counterpart, the 00 offers rich, balanced tone with excellent note separation, making it a fine choice for fingerstyle guitarists, singer-songwriters, or anyone else looking for a balance of comfort, volume, and responsiveness.
