Pre-Owned 2020 Collings Guitars D1A Traditional - 14980


Collings D1A Traditional

The Traditional or "T" Series of guitars hearkens back to the pre-war guitar 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. Custom pre-war scalloped x 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 Collings' popular Vintage Now neck, but with a slightly more tapered carve and rolled fingerboard edges.

The Custom Adirondack Spruce top provides virtually unlimited headroom, perfect for a heavy hand or anyone looking to acoustically cut through a band or mix! Combined with this beautiful set of mahogany, this dreadnought comes off sounding punchy, dry, but with a commanding presence!

This pre-owned D1AT sounds quite amazing. Collings really knocked it out of the park with this dreadnought, a perfect strummer and articulate fingerpicking guitar with a ton of headroom, all while sounding like a vintage pre-war guitar! It also has that beautiful pre-war aesthetic with the Julian Lage Aged Toner finish. There are virtually no signs of wear on this guitar aside from minor pickguard scratches. This is essentially a new guitar. Comes with the original TKL case.
