Collings D1 -The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only companyto build them, they bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles.
This D1 is brand new and comes with a Collings Hard Case. It features a Solid Spruce top and Solid Mahogany back and sides, dark Ebony fretboard and bridge.
