Collings D1 T Guitar Baked Sitka Spruce and Mahogany

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, 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 their Vintage Now neck, but with a slightly more tapered carve and rolled fingerboard edges.

This Traditional model features 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 11/16" bone nut, cutthrough bone saddle, & no tongue brace. The baked sitka combined with the mahogany back creates a punchy mid range strummer that is perfect for the studio, the stage, or any songwriting session.
