(NEW) Thing of beauty right here! This Collings D2HT has all the latest and greatest. The Traditional build style means a lighter overall build, with forward-shifted, scalloped braces, small maple bridge plate and no tongue brace. Combined with the animal protein glue construction, these Traditional specs result in a warmer, richer sounding instrument... all without sacrificing Collings' legendary clarity and power.
This instrument has the nuanced and organic looking dark sunburst finish over a tight-grained Sitka spruce top, with a herringbone top border. The back and sides are straight-grained Indian rosewood. We had Collings spray their thin satin nitrocellulose finish for maximum breathability and response. Unlike the Waterloo guitars that bear a similar finish, the Traditionals have pore filler applied, and the satin finish is perfectly smooth.
This guitar has a 1 3/4" nut on the Traditional Carve modified V neck. String spacing at the saddle is 2 5/16". Full 25.5" scale. Drop-in saddle. The ebony fingerboard and bridge have a subtle and pleasing figure to them. As on all T-models, the fingerboard edges are rolled for comfort. Relic'd Waverly open back tuners and a TKL hard case complete the package.
