This 2018 Collings 01 Traditional is in excellent cosmetic and structural condition. The frets show just the slightest amount of wear and have years of playing in their future. This guitar has a subtly shaded top, one of our favorite finishes. The mahogany and spruce 01 may not be the most popular Collings model, but it is one the best sounding guitars they build. Don't let the small size fool you; this is a firecracker of a guitar with a surprising amount of punch and power in its little body. It responds immediately to the light touch of a fingerpicker but you can also get a lot of volume out of it with a flatpick. This is a great guitar for playing old-time music and it sounds particularly fine in the company of open-back banjos and oval hole mandolins. The standard 01 sounds very good but when built to Traditional specs, it really comes alive. Includes the original Collings-made case.
