Collings 00-42 Koa & German Spruce NAMM 2018

Sold

This show-stopping 00-42 from Collings Guitars was the buzz of Instagram during the recent NAMM show. And after looking at it, it's not hard to understand why. The exquisitely figured Koa back and sides set the stage for the rest of this guitar's elegant presence; and the abalone peghead border takes things right over the top. Luckily, it's not style over substance here: this little lap piano can fill a room with tone. And the German Spruce top provides headroom galore -- enough to satisfy heavy flatpickers (but let's be honest, this is a guitar that just begs to be played delicately, doesn't it?). If you've been waiting to add a lifetime small-bodied guitar as a foil to your dreadnought, we can't think of a better candidate. Priced with TKL hard case from Collings!
