The "T" stands for "Traditional" and from Collings, this means that this top-quality hand-made guitar is finished with old style ultra-thin nitrocellulose lacquer, constructed with genuine hide glue and has no added tongue brace, which all yields extra tone.  This little powerhouse of a guitar arrived at our shop and immediately proved to have sound beyond its size.  Comes with a Collings-made vintage style parlor case!  

Collings' description follows:

Parlor 1:  The long and narrow body shape of the new Collings Parlor isinspired by some of the earliest steel string guitar designs that form the roots of the modern acoustic guitar family tree. First popularized in the late 19th century,this diminutive guitar has often been overlooked in favor of its larger and louder descendants, but the parlor body style is once again finding its way into the hands of players who appreciate its exceptional tonal balance and responsiveness, as well as its portability and comfortable feel. Named for what we now call the "living room", this guitar comes from an era when friends would gather at home to make music before an evening's entertainment could be readily broadcast, televised or streamed. Crafted with our Traditional series appointments, features, and voicing techniques, the Collings Parlor has a full bodied voice and projection that belies its small size and is the first T-series guitar with an all mahogany option available!
