Collings delves into the world of koa guitars with this very special 01 - the first Traditional series koa guitar we've had in our shop! Koa is more often associated with the ukulele, where the tonewood's brightness helps to boost the volume and presence of the diminutive instrument. The same applies to this small-bodied, short scale 01. With koa back and sides, you get all the brightness you'd expect, while the torrefied Sitka spruce top lends some warmth and roundedness. Combined with the satin finish and Collings' Traditional construction techniques, the end result is a guitar that really brings out the best of koa. It may be small, but with its crystal-clear treble and punchy mid-range, this 01 will sing out in a jam.
Collings doesn't often get koa, so snap this one up while you can! Priced with TKL hard case.
