Collings Guitars has expanded its acclaimed T-Series of traditional, vintage-inspired guitars with four new 0-size acoustic models available in both 12-fret and 14-fret variations.
Collings says its T-Series combines the company’s: ‘…carefully refined approach to capturing the warm, fundamental tone of coveted pre-war instruments with true-to-era appointments and an original handcrafted case that’s been designed and built in-house to exacting standards’.
Collings aims to recreate vintage character and feel by the use of lightweight tonewoods that are individually selected and hand-voiced, along with an ultra thin all-nitrocellulose lacquer finish, animal protein glue construction, and several other finer details that, the company says, ‘collectively help push the tone in the intended direction’.
Model variations include the 14-fret 01 T and 02H T models, which feature mahogany and East Indian rosewood back and sides respectively and traditional appointments that complement the woods. Also available are the new 01 12-Fret T and 02H 12-Fret T models, offered in similar appointment schemes, but with an elongated upper bout, slotted headstock, and pyramid-style bridge for a slightly richer tonality and enhanced midrange response. All T-Series models are equipped with fully adjustable truss rods, gently rolled fingerboard edges, gold mother-of-pearl inlays, wood fibre purflings, and distinctive celluloid bridge pins.
