And now, something that will blow your mind. The Collings Baritone utilizes their DS body dimensions to beautifully communicate the extended harmonic range of baritone tuning. 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 baritone, with a longer scale of 27.5" creates a snappy string attack that when combined with the chiming musicality of the tone woods selected, makes for a beautifully dynamic and responsive instrument with ringing sustain and warmth.
With a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, this guitar has a clear, focused tone that is rich in lows with a strong, pleasing high end.
Indian Rosewood keeps the tone rich and full with round notes and lush chords up and down the neck. This brings a fantastic rich tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a baritone guitar.
This guitar being a 13-fret capitalizes upon the best attributes of a 12-fret's resonance and a 14-fret's access. The body fits perfectly in your hands, inspiring gorgeous strumming sounds or intricate finger-picked passages.
