Collings Baritone 3G
Wow! It’s just the word that pops in your head when you strum this Collings Baritone 3G guitar. 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. This is the perfect guitar for most deep voices that find singing with a guitar in Standard E tuning hard to manage. 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.
This guitar has a Custom German Spruce top to accompany the Indian Rosewood back and sides. The clear, focused tone is rich in lows with a strong, pleasing high end. German Spruce is a favorite tonewood here at Artisan due to its versatility when played fingerstyle or flatpicked. German Spruce offers rich, complex overtones and regarding stiffness, falls in between Sitka and Adirondack. Some folks think of German Spruce having nice “rounded” notes to it. And being a 13-fret guitar it capitalizes upon the best attributes of a 12-fret's resonance and a 14-fret's access.
The simple elegance of a Collings Style 3 includes an Ivoroid Bound Headstock and Fretboard, no Fretboard Inlays, Gold Waverly Tuners, a 3-Style Zipper Backstrip and a beautiful Abalone Rosette. All dressed up without going overboard. It comes with a Standard Collings Hardshell Case.
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.
