The 001 Traditional is a slam-dunk if you're considering adding a small-bodied Collings to your stable.
Why We Love This
The Collings "Traditional" lineup now includes 00 models, and perhaps most noticeably, a 14-fret version of the classic mid-sized small body design.
With a lower bout width of 14 1/2" and a 24 7/8" scale length, the 14-fret 00 provides a compelling alternative to an OM for players interested in downsizing without sacrificing tone (if anything, the shorter scale of the 00 will likely provide some added high-end warmth when flatpicked).
The 001-T's ease of response and direct, surprisingly full sound provide a strong foundation for whatever your chosen musical style may be. Even in dropped-D tuning, this little powerhouse can fill a room with sound; and it makes a beautiful choice for accompanying a vocal.
