Collings Baritone 1
When Bill Collings first introduced the new Baritone guitar at NAMM people couldn’t put it down. Built on Collings DS body it is perfect to project the extended harmonic range of Baritone tuning. With a 27.5” scale is it tuned B to B. We hand a baritone to players when they want to hear something that is different – sort of a palette cleanser for their ears.
If they have never played a baritone they are in for a big treat. With deep yet articulate bass, this baritone acoustic makes for an inspiring tool in any songwriter or recording artist's arsenal and opens up new musical voicings and arrangements to explore. Almost every single person looks up and tells us with a glint in their eye “I can sing with this.” This is the perfect guitar for most deep voices that find singing with a guitar in Standard E tuning hard to manage.
A Baritone 1 model which we feel is a great deal with its Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany Back and Sides. A suble custom appointment is the Rope Purfling. It has Tortoise Bindings, Tortoise Pickguard, Bone Nut and Bone Drop in Saddle. And being a 13-fret guitar, it capitalizes upon the best attributes of a 12-fret's resonance and a 14-fret's access. It is strung with D'Addario EXP23 Phosphor Bronze Strings (.016", .022”, .029”, .048”, .060”, .070"). It comes with a Standard Collings Hardshell Case.
We cannot stress it enough - if you have not tried an acoustic Baritone you really do need to. They expand your whole thought process for songwriting and singing. This guitar will make you love to sing again. Please give us a call and let us send it to you.
