Collings Acoustic Guitars - D1 Traditional T Series - Baked
This Collings D1 Traditional - Baked is a return to just that, traditional building techniques and materials combined with Bill Collings' exquisite attention to detail. This new series is highlighted by traditional style bracing and tone woods which are adjusted, weighed and voiced to produce particularly warm, rounded highs while maintaining a full, rich low end. The extra thin Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, applied without a polyvinyl sealer, makes for a lively, expressive top that has the feel of an old vintage guitar of the past. The Traditional Series tone is further enhanced by the use of Animal Protein glue, which can dry harder making every joint of this D1 that much more resonate and powerful.
This particular Traditional D1 features a Baked Sitka Spruce top that makes for an even more open and "broken in" sound right out of the box, paired with a stunning Mahogany back and sides for a loud, dynamic dreadnought tone.
Here at Mass Street Music, through our owner Jim Baggett, we have had the great privilege of getting to collaborate with Bill Collings and his team of skilled craftsman on these new models. We couldn't be more excited to have been a part of this new Traditional Series. This Collings D1 Traditional - Baked also features the custom built Collings case, and includes a free setup from our luthiers.
