Collings D2H T Baked Adirondack and Madagascar Rosewood

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.

This particular Traditional model features a custom baked adirondack top, Madagascar Rosewood 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 w/ 2 5/16" bridge spacing, Cutthrough bone saddle, No tongue brace 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 first to build them, they bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar.

This instrument features a Baked Adirondack Top. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking.

This instrument is in Excellent + Condition with only a few very faint surface scratches on the top and back. These are hard to detect.

Comes with its original hardshell case.
