Used – Collings Baby 2H (1996)

Serial Number: 1871

There is nothing baby sounding about this Collings Baby specimen. These wonderful instruments are big and full sounding without age, and this one has had 24 glorious years to develop into a balanced and nuanced tone monster.

Read Collings pitch below and check out the fantastic specs below that:

Our smallest model is a rarity among fractional size guitars: most listeners never guess that it’s not a full-size instrument unless they see it being played. While lacking the deep bass of larger guitars the tone is remarkably balanced, with adequate volume for most applications. The Collings Baby is approximately a 3/4 size version of our OM, 12 1/2 inches wide in the lower bout with a 24 1/8 inch scale, and the headstock and bridge are scaled to match. Sometimes the Baby is used as a travel guitar, but it often sees duty as a songwriter’s tool, the guitar that’s ready at a moment’s notice and can be played while seated in any position. The same wide range of woods and options offered on other Collings models are available on the Baby as well, but rosewood versions with a spruce top are by far the most popular.
