Collings D2H Traditional

 

The Traditional or “T” Series guitars reflect Bill Collings’ return to his guitarmaking roots and offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. Each TSeries guitar is built using animal protein glue and a very thin all nitrocellulose lacquerfinish, making them exceptionally dynamic and responsive. Bracing and tone woods areadjusted 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. Each Traditional series guitar will come with a handmade lightweight Collings case designed and built in the Collings shop. 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.
