Collings builds terrific dreads, and their venerable D1 with the Traditional package is no exception. This guitar is customized with a 1.75 nut. Handsome and understated tortoise binding with gold mother of pearl inlays , the Custom Traditional Series pre-war scalloped X-brace (no tongue brace), ultra-thin nitro finish and ebony fretboard and an ebony belly bridge give it Collings’ typical impressive volume and projection, yet allow the guitar to be equally responsive to a light touch. Dread of a lifetime. Lifetime warranty and hardshell case. Serial # 31420.
Collings sez: “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 tone woods 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.”
