(NEW) Some time ago, Collings called us with an offer of a few very special sets of highly figured mahogany, top/back/side sets that were of tight flame and cut sequentially from the same board. This offer doesn’t come around very often, and we decided to do something truly unique: an all-mahogany Baby! When this little wonder arrived, we couldn’t stop staring.
If you’ve never played a Collings Baby, you’ll find yourself amazed at the quality of sound, the volume, and the ease of playability that goes along with its 24 1/8″ scale length. We are BIG fans of this LITTLE model, and we’ve done it in many, many tonewood combos, but figured mahogany is a new one for us! Since we were pulling out all the stops, we added a couple of our favorite small guitar features, namely rope purfling and a pyramid bridge. This one has a 1 3/4″ nut and 2 3/16″ string spacing at the saddle.
The sound: it has a dry bark, a little compression, a load of projection, and plenty of headroom. This is one dynamite little box!
It took almost a year to arrive, and we don’t expect to see another one like it any time soon! A prize for you or the small guitar lover in your life.
