Collings MT Torrefied Sitka Gloss Top Sunburst

Photo for Ad 136683

Introducing the new torrefied Sitka Spruce MT from Collings! While we agree with our friends in Austin that there's no "magic bullet" for great tone, this MT has noticeably better volume and woodiness that you'd expect, with a terrific resonant quality in-hand. Also features a gloss-finished top and purfling lines. Priced with TKL hard case!

Check out the video of Collings' own Alex Reub playing a torrefied MT! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLUc7nTVgDg
