Collings D1 T 2019
The Traditional or "T" Series of dreadnought and OM guitars reflect Collings' return to their guitar making roots and offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. Prompted by the development of the depression-era inspired Waterloo guitars, Collings had an idea for a new series of Collings guitars that would possess a strong fundamental tonal response characteristic of vintage guitars from the 1930s era.
Each T Series guitar is built using animal protein glue and a very thin all-nitrocellulose lacquer finish on the body, making them exceptionally dynamic and responsive. Bracing and tone woods are adjusted for weight and thickness to create a voicing characterized by warm rounded highs and a present low midrange, while retaining a quick attack and strong projection. The T Series models also feature a new Traditional neck profile based on our Vintage Now neck, but with a slightly more tapered carve and rolled fingerboard edges.
This Traditional model features a sunburst finish on a custom Baked Sitka Spruce Top. It has mahogany back and sides, Animal protein glue, Very thin all-nitrocellulose lacquer body finish, w/ custom wood rosette, traditional neck profile, 1 3/4" bone nut, cutthrough bone saddle, No tongue brace.
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ some light scratches throughout the guitar and a couple very small dings(see photos).
