One of the best mahogany top guitars we've seen. The OO1 Mh from Collings is a beast. Upon first strum, you immediately notice the mahogany top gives you that extra shimmer of top-end overtones. The guitar also has a very quick response and thick midrange. The comfortable setup makes for easy playing of lines and fingerstyle music. This is a wonderful instrument to have in your acoustic arsenal for something very different sounding than any spruce-top guitar.
We offer the 00 in its original, 12-fret configuration, a guitar shape that was first designed around the time of the Civil War. Its dimensions are similar to a typical classical guitar, with a slotted headstock and small pyramid bridge. The comfortable size and timeless appearance of the Collings 00 is matched by the ease of playing a wide neck and shorter string scale affords. The tone is typically balanced and precise, and we've seen it adopted for a wide range of playing styles from simple vocal accompaniment to ragtime solos. When you want the durability of a modern guitar but one that appears rooted in an earlier, simpler time, the 00 is a versatile choice.
