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. Each Traditional model comes with a Collings original vintage-inspired case

The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, we bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Each and every time we have a Collings D1A in the shop with a hand-rubbed varnish finish, it is time and time again one of our favorite guitars in the shop. This is a highly customized version featuring many of our favorite upgrades along with master grade Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany, brought to life by the masterful builders at Collings!

This particular Traditional model features a custom baked adirondack top, Mahogany back and sides, Animal protein glue, Very thin all-nitrocellulose lacquer body finish w/ aging toner, w/ custom wood rosette Gold mother-of-pearl logo and fingerboard inlay, Custom neck profile 1 3/4" bone nut, cutthrough bone saddle, No tongue brace. Each Traditional model comes with a Collings original vintage-inspired case.
