Guitar Gallery is a premium guitar shop in South Africa and we stock some of the best guitars in the world. We have this beautiful pre-owed Collings Baby 2H in stock. It has a sitka spruce top with beautiful East Indian Rosewood for the back and sides.
This the smallest model is a rarity among fractional size guitars: most listeners never guess that it's not a full-size instrument unless they see it being played. While lacking the deep bass of larger guitars the tone is remarkably balanced, with adequate volume for most applications. The Collings Baby is approximately a ¾ size version of the OM, 12 ½ inches wide in the lower bout with a 24 ⅛ inch scale, and the headstock and bridge are scaled to match. Sometimes the Baby is used as a travel guitar, but it often sees duty as a songwriter's tool, the guitar that's ready at a moment's notice and can be played while seated in any position.
