(NEW) The 002 is becoming a big favorite around here, delivering practically OM-sized balance and projection in a smaller package. While Gibson-style 00 guitars tend to have a bit of inherent compression and a midrange bark, Martin-inspired guitars like this one sound warmer and seem to be more responsive to lighter playing.
We didn't get overly fancy on this one, though we did say "hold the herringbone" and spec'd tortoise body binding instead of ivoroid. We're big fans of all things simple/stealthy. Sitka spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides. 24 7/8" scale mahogany neck with modified "V" profile, 1 3/4" nut width and 2 3/16" string spacing at the saddle. Ebony fingerboard with diamond and square inlays, ebony bridge and pins. Nicely figured peghead overlay, Waverly tuners. Includes original TKL hard case.
AMW Price: $5,800 (Online checkout, Collings 2023 MAP price)
