1996 Collings 0002H Koa, Sitka Spruce Top, Koa Back and Sides - SOLD



(USED) Sorry, we're not counting the dings on this one (and neither should you!)  This fantastic, inspiring 0002H from 1996 is just a heck of a guitar.  It has been ridden hard, it has been well gigged and well loved.  It is eager to remain in service, in your capable hands!

Yes, there is obvious pick wear and lacquer checking all over the top of the guitar.  A strummer this guitar was... but it sounds great with any approach you throw at it.  It is completely played-in, yet possesses an almost magical articulation and sparkle.  It reminds us that koa ain't just good for staring at (though this guitar... WOW!)

As it reaches its silver anniversary, the setup of this guitar looks like it just rolled out of the Collings factory.  It has a nice tall saddle, 3/2 action at the 12th fret, and is wanting for nothing in terms of playability.  It has newer frets, with just a bit of wear under the unwound strings.  The shaft of the neck is almost completely free of dings or finish scars, but for full disclosure, there are two tiny dings, behind the 3rd and 5th frets.  The tuners have been upgraded to engraved Waverly with ivoroid buttons, and the pins have been replaced with bone.  An under-saddle pickup has been removed and a new compensated bone saddle installed.  

Specs from the factory: 1 13/16" nut width and 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle.  Modified "V" neck profile with slotted peghead and diamond volute.  Ebony fingerboard with short pattern diamond and square inlays.  Herringbone top border, ivoroid body binding and zipper back strip.  Includes original hard case.  

One of the coolest guitars in the shop right now!  A Collings that has mojo, tone, vibe, history, knock-out looks... it has it all.
