Collings 001T Old Growth Sitka, 12-Fret Traditional Model, Mahogany, NAMM 2024 - NEW - ON HOLD


(NEW) Collings is a company that is always moving forward, and sometimes that takes the form of looking backward.  Their popular Traditional series takes the impeccable, uncompromising build style of a Collings and lightens it up, with some features that contribute to a warmer overall voice.  A recent option is Old Growth Alaskan Sitka spruce on the top, wood that has aged for many, many decades to produce yet more vintage character.  For the 2024 NAMM show they displayed this excellent 001T.  

The top is striking in appearance, with huge streaks of bear claw figuring and a deep amber color.  The mahogany back and sides have the more typical quartered look found on most Collings.  As a Traditional model, it has forward-shifted, scalloped Sitka spruce braces, no tongue brace, a small maple bridge plate and rolled fingerboard edges.  Being a "1" style it has simple fiber band top purfling, a 3-ring rosette and dot inlays on the fingerboard.  The mahogany neck has the Traditional mod "V" profile, a 1 3/4" nut and 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle.  This model defaults to 24 7/8" (short) scale length.  The body binding and bridge pins are both faux-tortoise.  The tuners are nickel Waverly.  Includes TKL hard case.

The sound is woody and immediate, with all of the articulation a Collings is known for.
