Description

Fresh new Collings D1-T ("T" for "Traditional"), built with a torrefied Sitka Spruce top. The T Series guitars from Collings reflect Bill & Company's desire to revive the classic building techniques of the 1930's, integrating them seamlessly with the modern standards of playability and finish work for which Collings sets the bar. This D1-T has the large, rumbling voice we hear in the Collings Traditional guitars, but there's a noticeable mellowness about it as well. The note attack is rounded off and drier sounding -- even more like playing a vintage guitar. As part of the Traditional appointment package, each -T guitar is priced with Collings' own handmade vintage-style hard case -- check out the video below for an in-depth look behind the case development process if you haven't seen it already. An invigorating development from Austin!
