This Collings 01A 12-fret is without a doubt the staff-favorite guitar at the moment (the acoustic department, anyway). Since we can likely all agree that this guitar looks absolutely drool-worthy, let's get to the tone. Its torrefied Adirondack top imparts the same wide-open, bell-like tone we hear in the similar D1A models we've stocked. A hugely resonant little guitar, it's actually a great little flatpicking machine: balanced all over the fretboard, with great response from the treble strings and a very powerful low E for bass runs. A knockout from our friends at Collings. Priced with TKL hard case.
