We are excited to have a new Traditional Series Collings acoustic arrive in stock, and this guitar sure is a beauty. Constructed from Sitka spruce and Honduran mahogany, this phenomenally built guitar offers the charming Collings sound you expect but with a tonality that calls back to the top acoustics of the 1920s and ’30s. What helps the Collings T-Series stand out in its build is the use of animal protein glue and a thin, all nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Additionally, the bracing and tone woods are meticulously chosen and fitted to help this guitar achieve a strong dynamic range. With warm highs and balanced lows and mids, this guitar is able to project strongly with a hard attack.
This Collings T-Series also comes with a custom-built vintage-inspired Collings hard case. Built by the Collings team in-house, the high-quality case fits perfectly with the build quality and aesthetics you have come to expect from every Collings acoustic.
