The Traditional or “T” Series guitars reflect Bill Collings’ return to his guitar making roots and offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. This D1A T features a torrefied (baked, cooked) Adirondack Spruce top and bracing with Honduran Mahogany back and sides with a full body vintage toner. It’s built using animal protein glue (AP) and a very thin all nitrocellulose lacquer finish, making this 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.

Each Traditional series guitar will come with a handmade lightweight Collings case designed and built in the Collings shop. The pairing of these new Traditional guitars and cases makes for a combination of old world quality and aesthetic that is unprecedented among instruments available today.

Includes Lifetime Warranty.
