Collings AT-16 Blonde w/Pickup



Here's a rare chance to acquire a Collings AT-16 ~ made even more desirable by its sultry Blonde finish! The AT-16s are considered the pinnacle of Collings' craftsmanship; and this one dates to c.2007, when Bill Collings was making them himself. Constructed by hand, with premium tonewoods specially sanctioned for archtop construction, a Collings AT-16 provides unusual depth of tone and warmth while retaining the crisp, midrangey punch associated with the greatest vintage guitars. This instrument is in excellent condition: it's been well-maintained and displays virtually no signs of handling whatsoever. Factory installed Kent Armstrong pickup. Priced with its original TKL hard case.
