Now THAT's what a sunburst is supposed to look like! This Collings D1A-T ("T" for "Traditional"), built with a torrefied Adirondack Spruce top and Mahogany back & sides, has the large, rumbling voice, and darker sound of a non-torrefied D1A-T, 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. Check out the video below for an in-depth look behind development of the Traditional series. Priced with handmade Collings vintage-style case!
