Karl Neurauter, our acoustic specialist, hand-selected the set of Cocobolo wood to be used for the back and sides on this instrument. He designed it in person on his visit to the Collings factory in July 2017. Other premium upgrades or changes include Adirondack spruce top, 3-Style backstrip, Adirondack spruce bracing, 1-3/4" nut, and a "Jet Black" color top, as well as the removal of the traditional herringbone body purfling.
