01 12-String


01 12-StringCombining the timeless appearance and enduringly popular tone of the "0" body style with a 12-string configuration has resulted in this unique new model. With a sound that belies its small size, the 0 12-String has exceptional note separation with a quick attack and beautiful harmonic complexity. The smaller body dimension and short 24 7/8" scale also imparts a percussive quality to the note attack that makes this an exceptional finger style and recording guitar. With a sound and feel all its own, the 0 12-string brings something new to this classic design.

Hand Voiced

From the starting point of the wood's density and rigidity, each acoustic guitar top is hand selected, evaluated, and carved to its own unique thickness; maximizing the tonal potential of each top.

Premium Tonewoods

Each Collings acoustic guitar, from our most affordable model to the highest end, are built with the finest tonewoods available. Each wood is acquired, acclimated, and hand selected by master luthiers here at our shop who pick each component with the whole tonality of the end instrument in mind.

Short Scale Length

A short 24 7/8 inch scale creates a warm note attack and lower tension string feel that lends itself well to a variety of playing styles.


By meticulously hand-sanding between coats, our nitrocellulose lacquer finishes measure between .005 and .007 inches in final thickness, maximizing acoustical response while providing excellent protection and aesthetics.


Premium Waverly open gear tuners offer exceptional tuning stability and smooth reliable operation.


Tortoiseshell binding compliments the warm hues of a mahogany back and sides. A black and white wood rosette and mother of pearl dot inlays complete the simple but elegant 1-style appointments.

12-String Neck Profile

Our 12-String neck features a comfortable Modified V profile with a 1 7/8 inch nut and 2 13/32 inch string spacing at the bridge.
