Collings D2H T (Traditional Series) Dreadnought Guitar
Collings D2H T (Traditional Series) is an amazing guitar with a vintage guitar tone. This specific guitar has some gorgeous rosewood on the back and sides.
The Traditional or "T" Series guitars reflect Bill Collings' return to his guitar making roots and offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. Each T Series guitar is built using animal protein glue and a very thin all nitrocellulose lacquer finish, making them exceptionally dynamic and responsive. Bracing and tone woods are adjusted for weight and thickness to create a voicing characterized by warm, rounded highs and a present low midrange, while retaining a quick attack and strong projection. The pairing of these new Traditional guitars and cases makes for a combination of old world quality and aesthetic that is unprecedented among instruments available today.
These Traditional Series guitars by Collings are really blowing us and everyone who walks in the shop away.
