(NEW) Another little bundle of joy from our friends at Collings! The Baby is their smallest 14-fret offering, essentially a 3/4 scale version of their OM2H. It always surprises and delights with its liveliness, and it's hard to argue with the comfort proposition. It's a couch guitarist's dream.
This one is souped up with Wenge, an excellent (yet underrated) rosewood-family tone wood that has a lot of the character of Brazilian. It ain't much to look at, plain as it is, but it sure delivers a nice sound! It pairs well with the Sitka top, it's hard to get this much warmth out of such a small box.
For specs, it's 1 3/4" nut, 2 3/16" string spacing at the saddle, short 24 1/8" scale length. All appointments are "Style 2" including herringbone top trim, ivoroid body binding, 3-ring rosette, diamond/square fingerboard inlays and zipper back strip. The mahogany neck has Collings' standard mod "V" profile, and the tuners are Waverly. Includes hard case.
AMW Price: $6,400 (Online checkout, Collings 2023 MAP price)
