Collings’ newest series! Here we have a brand new Collings 002H T. The T signifies the Traditional Series which marks a return to vintage inspired design, construction, and voicing. The T series employs animal protein glue and a very thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, along with pre-war scalloped bracing and specific tone wood selection to provide a vintage voicing characterized by warm, rounded highs and a present low midrange, with quick attack and strong projection.
Here’s what they have to say about it!:
“As our newest acoustic body size, the 00 14-Fret Series finds the sweet spot between a small-bodied and mid-sized instrument while bringing to the table a distinctive voice and character all its own. Upon picking up the guitar, it doesn’t take more than a few strums to reveal a pleasing midrange resonance that distinguishes this size from other offerings. This fullness of tone is complemented by dry and articulate attack, with more low-end definition than you’d typically
expect to find in an instrument of this size. The shorter 24 7/8” scale length combined with a relatively broad waist allows for a more delicate top-voicing, producing an openness that’s equally suited for accentuating subtle nuances as it is for digging in on single-note runs. All in all, the 00 14-fret is a highly versatile instrument that excels at a variety of playing styles from fingerstyle to strumming and anything in between.”
Basic Specs: Nickel Waverly Butterbean tuners. 1 3/4 inch Bone nut. Mahogany neck with a 24 7/8 inch scale length. Neck depth of .80 inches at the first fret and 1.05 inches at the twelfth fret. Ebony fingerboard with 20 medium Nickel-Silver frets and a compound 14 to 26 inch radius. The neck profile also changes from rounded to a more vee shape as you move beyond the ninth fret. Carefully selected Sitka Spruce top with East Indian Rosewood back and sides. Ebony bridge with Bone saddle. Tortoise style pickguard.
