Collings 003 12-Fret – Blue Spruce Bearclaw/Fiddleback Mahogany

Serial Number: 31089

And here is a superb Collings 003 12-Fret Blue Spruce Bearclaw with Fiddleback Mahogany for your enjoyment. She’s a beut Clark. And she ain’t just for the parlor. Equisite craftsmanship from our friends at Collings as always.

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.
