(NEW) Collings O-42Gsb, Wenge & German spruce, Sunburst – Slot-head – Spectacular! – $7,965

(NEW) Another gorgeous 12-fret “O” Model, just arrived from Collings. If you follow this site closely, you know that we just love pairing the finest exotic German spruce with the dense and highly desirable rosewoods like Brazilian, Cocobolo, Madagascar and now… Wenge!  Since first hearing this relatively new back/side wood on a Collings dreadnought during our annual visit to Collings last year, we have been hooked. Wenge guitars seem to have tonal complexity, volume and bass response to match the very finest rosewood guitars, Brazilian included. And that is saying something. This guitar proves that concept completely.


The common O body characteristics are there: small comfortable footprint with surprisingly large voice. This guitar has perfect string-to-string balance, sparkle and projection to spare. The Wenge back and sides seem to add a thick layer of complexity warmth to the tone, which will only increase with playing.


It’s a real looker, to be sure! We’ve started with “Style-3″ appointments including fully bound neck and peghead, gold Waverly tuners, a marquetry backstrip and no fretboard inlays. We’ve decked this one out, 42-style, with abalone around the top border, fingerboard extension and in the rosette. This guitar has a nut width of 1 3/4″ and spacing at the saddle of 2 3/16”, our standard spec on all Collings O bodies.


Just another impeccably finished, beautiful sounding exotic O from our friends at Collings. Did you expect anything less?
