Collings D1-T Baked Sitka/Sunburst Top

Serial Number: 32617

You take a little salt, butter and blend it with the flour, then you add 2 teaspoons of vanilla… Then you lightly coat the Sitka and bake for 72 hours on 175. It’s a slow cook – and it smells wonderful…

No, that’s not really how Sitka is baked – but wouldn’t it smell awesome!

This Collings D1-T Baked Sitka is a glorious shout to yesteryear with familiar looks, heft, and appointments. the craftsmanship is all Collings. Which means PERFECT.

This is an instrument that will sound big and bold immediately – and only get better. Finely nuanced. balanced and beautiful.

An additional note from Collings:
Our Traditional Series or “T-Series” guitars represent an exciting vintage-inspired tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound, designed and crafted to showcase the most desirable characteristics present in coveted pre-war instruments. Bracing and tonewoods 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.
