The Collings "Traditional" lineup's option list has been expanded to include a "vintage satin" finish (the same finish applied to their OM1 Julian Lage signature model). This 01-T features an all-mahogany construction, and with the incorporation of the satin finish, it's easily the modern guitar scene's best offering for fans of the old style-17 instruments. The thin, matte finish texture adds to the old-world vibe of the instrument to be sure; but there's also an undeniable sonic difference as well. Overtones are tamed, low end responsiveness is noticeably better, and the note attack is drier and rounder. If you love the power and projection of a Collings, but you gravitate towards a mellower voice, you may find yourself crossing over to the world of satin soon (it also feels pretty wonderful on the back of the neck). Priced with TKL hard case from Collings.
