Collings 002HGMh, Pre-Owned

Based out of Austin, Texas, Collings is a boutique instrument company specializing in high-end guitars, mandolins, and ukuleles. This 002H is a traditionally spec’d 12-fret acoustic, based off guitars originating from the Civil War era. The guitar has a German spruce top with Mahogany back and sides. With a honduran mahogany neck, the guitar has a modified V profile, ebony fretboard, and a 14″-26″ compound radius. The guitar has a similar body to classical guitars and has a shorter scale length, making it a bit easier to play. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us a message!  There are two very small indentations on the top that are hard to photograph but are there.
