Collings D1A T Guitar Baked Adirondack and Mahogany

The new Traditional or "T" Series of dreadnought and OM guitars reflect Bill Collings' return to his 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, Bill 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. Vintage-inspired appointments include gold mother of pearl inlays with maple/rosewood purflings for 1-style guitars and small brown herringbone purflings for 2H-style guitars.

The Traditional model features Specially selected premium tonewoods, "Traditional" voicing with pre-war style Sitka spruce bracing, Animal protein glue, Very thin all-nitrocellulose lacquer body finish w/ aging toner, Maple/rosewood purfling (1-style) or small brown herringbone (2H-style) w/ custom wood rosette Gold mother-of-pearl logo and fingerboard inlay, Custom vintage neck profile 1 3/4" bone nut w/ 2 5/16" bridge spacing, Cutthrough bone saddle, No tongue brace Tortoise (1-style) or Ivoroid w/ black dot (2H-style) bridge pins.
