 Pre Owned 2013 Collings D2H Herringbone Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood

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 first to 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.

The standard D2H is ideal for players who find Adirondack Red Spruce too stiff for their style. Sitka Spruce is a versatile topwood that accentuates the warm round aspects of the guitar's tone. Indian Rosewood is warm and rounded with complex overtones.

The D2H is a powerful dreadnought without any compromise.

This Pre Owned 2013 Collings D2H Herringbone Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood is in excellent + condition. It has on small surface scratch on the top and pickguard which we have attempted to capture in the detailed photos below. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original certificate of authenticity and hardshell case.

Collings D1A VN Varnish Adirondack and Mahogany with Vintage Now Neck and Varnish

 Collings D1A VN Varnish Adirondack and Mahogany with Vintage Now Neck and Varnish

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 company to build them, we 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. The wide range of woods and neck sizes offered allow dreadnought fans to find a Collings model ideally suited to their playing style and tonal preference.

Each and every time we have a D1A in the shop with a hand-rubbed varnish finish, it is time and time again one of our favorite guitars in the shop. This is a highly customized version featuring many of our favorite upgrades along with master grade Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany, brought to life by the masterful builders at Collings!

Thinner than nitrocellulose lacquer, the varnish finish is more flexible and allows the wood to resonate more, significantly smoothing out the mids and highs of the Mahogany and Adirondack, while enhancing the low end and warming the highs considerably. For the die hard rosewood fans here in the shop, this guitar bridges the gap between rosewood and mahogany, projecting incredibly articulate note definition common with mahogany and the power and low end associated with rosewood.

The Adirondack Spruce drives the top of this guitar and provides ample power and headroom for heavy handed flatpickers while the fast response of the varnish provides a much better fingerstyle experience as opposed to lacquer.

The Vintage Now neck is a custom appointment on this instrument and is coupled with a 1 3/4" nut and 2 1/4" string spacing at the saddle. Collings Vintage Now neck is the perfect compromise for many players that think a modern neck is too flat in profile, yet the typical neck on a 40's style instrument is too thick.

Collings' exclusive neck profile is uniquely adapted to players looking for vintage width and girth, with contemporary playability. The slightly wider string spacing at both ends of the guitar also makes fingerstyle playing and chordal accompaniment more enjoyable. With a traditional "cut-through" saddle there should be no doubt as to the inspiration for this beast.

The custom Adirondack Braces are lighter and stiffer than Sitka, therefore they are more responsive and offer a more efficient transfer of energy through the top.

This D1A also was also custom built without a tongue brace. As people search for the mythical tone of old guitars, the tongue brace comes into scrutiny. Martin added the tongue brace in 1940 and it has become standard every since. The absence of a tongue brace frees the top to allow enhanced vibration and results in a richer, fuller, tone with more low end resonance.

This is a great feature for players who may be looking for a compromise between the mahogany and rosewood dreadnoughts. It is speculated that Martin added the brace to prevent top cracking, but the years have proven this to have been unnecessary and actually decreases resonation.

Collings D3A with Custom Adirondack Spruce Top and 41 Style Appointments

 Collings D3A with Custom Adirondack Spruce Top and 41 Style Appointments

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 company to 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.

Adirondack Spruce, "the holy grail" of topwoods, drives the top of this powerful instrument. Adirondack is generally favored by heavy handed players, and provides nearly unlimited headroom when you need the extra power.

On an open strum, the words clarity and richness come right to mind. The trebles are clean and defined without overpowering the overall richness of the bottom-end. Adirondack Spruce on the top with Adirondack barces makes this guitar incredibly powerful with virtually unlimited headroom and plenty of Adirondack crispness.

The gorgeous set of Indian Rosewood on the back and sides broadens out the dynamic range, bringing overtone rich low-end and mellow yet defined trebles. When fingerpicking, each note is rich and warm, yet well defined and easily articulated.

This guitar is loaded with upgrades... although it's technically a Collings D3A, it is essentially an upgraded D41A, with both visual and sonic options added.  The addition of the 41 Style Abalone top border, Abalone rosette, logo and 42 style abalone snowflake fingerboard inlays make this instrument stand out in the crowd.

A custom 1 23/32" nut width and gold Waverly tuners complete the package on this incredible instrument.  The tone is especially balanced with lots of power and clarity, and a great low end as well.

 Pre Owned 2013 Collings D1 Indian Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Adirondack Braces

Collings brings new clarity to the depth and warmth associated with large, deep-bodied dreadnought guitars. The bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, however, Collings D1 Series Mahogany dreads are employed by some of the busiest bluegrass flatpickers in the business, such as Andy Falco of the Stringdusters and Adam Aijala of Yonder Mountain String Band.

This instrument features a Sitka Spruce top combined with Indian Rosewood back and sides. This combination is favorable for many playing styles as it offers the most versatility in regards to heavy or light playing. Rosewood offers a lush, rich tone with lots of reverberation like properties and a full low end. Sitka can be played fingerstyle or with a flatpick and can excel at both.

It is ideal for flatpickers who don't require the stiffness of Adirondack, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch. When combined with rosewood on the back and sides, Sitka is very lush and has a warm, rich low end.

Sitka is ideal for players who find Adirondack Red Spruce too punchy, bright, and stiff - but do not want to sacrifice on clarity. Sitka Spruce is a versatile topwood that accentuates the warm round aspects of the guitar's tone.

This guitar is also incredibly balanced in it's frequency response. Notes are rich and full all the way up and down the neck. The midrange and high-end sparkle will cut through any studio or on-stage mix with ease. The lows are balanced, defined, well rounded, and never boomy.

Additional custom appointments include Adirondack braces, and no tongue brace. Adirondack braces are thinner and lighter making the guitar much more resonant and open.

As people search for the mythical tone of old guitars, the tongue brace comes into scrutiny. Martin added the tongue brace in 1940 and it has become standard every since. The absence of a tongue brace frees the top to allow enhanced vibration and results in a richer, fuller, tone with more low end resonance.

This is a great feature for players who may be looking for a compromise between the mahogany and rosewood dreadnoughts. It is speculated that Martin added the brace to prevent top cracking, but the years have proven this to have been unnecessary and actually decreases resonation.

Collings OM2H G German Spruce and Indian Rosewood Deep Body

Hear This Instrument: Collings OM2HG German Spruce and Indian Rosewood Deep Body
Recorded In-House on a Sony PCM-D50 handheld recorder with no compression or eq.
 Collings OM2H G German Spruce and Indian Rosewood Deep Body

The Collings OM2HG features a German Spruce top and East Indian Rosewood back and sides. The extra features are what make this particular model stand out from the rest, featuring a thicker, deep body, measuring 4 5/8" deep. The deeper body provides rich low tones not often heard on OM size guitars, providing an incredibly rich and full sound.  The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the deep depth of the body on this custom model results in a strong and powerful tone with an immediate response and much larger bottom end than is generally found on OM sized guitars.

This guitar possesses all the projection and tonal clarity Collings is known for, while still maintaining a good measure of warmth on the bottom end. The body size of the OM lends itself towards a more focused and defined tone than a typical dreadnought size, in a much more comfortable package.

German Spruce and Indian Rosewood is a classic combination of tonewoods that is incredibly easy to fall in love with on a guitar such as this Collings. German Spruce is one of our favorite choices for topwood. German Spruce has a stiffness to weight ratio that falls somewhere between Sitka and Adirondack, making it an ideal compromise for many playing styles. German is stiff enough to handle heavy flatpicking, but also responds very well to fingerstyle players as well.

When combined with East Indian Rosewood back and sides, it produces a lush low end that is clear and powerful. This guitar really shines, with a surprisingly loud voice, impeccable clarity, and that legendary Collings tone.

Additionally, the custom 1 3/4" nut width is more comfortable to play while sitting down, and gives players more room for complex fingerings.

This Collings D1A is extraordinarily loud. The Adirondack Spruce top loves to be played loud and provides ample headroom and power needed to cut through bluegrass ensembles.

The Mahogany back and sides keep your lead lines clear and distinct, just like the classic flatpicking recordings we've grown to love from players like Clarence White, Doc Watson, and Norman Blake.

Loudness aside, this guitar is also incredibly balanced in it's frequency response. Notes are rich and full all the way up and down the neck. The midrange and high-end sparkle will cut through any studio or on-stage mix with ease. The lows are balanced, defined, well rounded, and never boomy.

Collings C10 SB Sitka Spruce and Spanish Cedar with Sunburst Finish

Hear This Instrument: Collings C10 SB Sitka Spruce and Spanish Cedar with Sunburst Finish
Recorded In-House on a Sony PCM-D50 handheld recorder with no compression or eq.
 Collings C10 SB Sitka Spruce and Spanish Cedar with Sunburst Finish

Based on guitars first introduced around the same time as the OM, the Collings C10 is a leaner alternative, with the narrow waist and small upper bout resulting in a precise, focused response. The smaller upper bout is gratifying and a true dream to play. It's this unique body size that allows the C10 to project a more focused mid-range then other smaller bodied guitars. This mid-range is combined with a crisp low-end and rounded, mellow trebles. Of all the acoustic models Collings produces, the C10 is perhaps the easiest for electric guitarists to adapt to, thanks in part to the more rounded neck profile.

This Collings C10 combines the standard Sitka Spruce top with custom Flamed Spanish Cedar back and sides. Sitka is ideal for players who find Adirondack Red Spruce too punchy, bright, and stiff - but do not want to sacrifice on clarity. Sitka Spruce is a versatile topwood that accentuates the warm round aspects of the guitar's tone. The top end is sweet and crisp; with a driving, focused midrange and low-end. It strums with the best of them, but has a neck that flatpicks beautifully across the board. There is a reason Colling's are revered for their C10's!

Flamed Spanish Cedar is also know as Cedrela Montana. It is harvested from managed timber forest concession in Peru. There is no clear cutting and it does not come from plantations. It is dense and solid and has all the qualities of traditional Spanish Cedar but, unlike it’s cousin, this cedar species does not ooozz sap from it’s pores. This high elevation species has spectacular color, quality and stability.

Although this instrument bares a resemblance of a C10 Deluxe, this is a standard C10 with custom appointments such as, 1 3/4" nut width which gives you plenty of room for complex chord shapes. The standard ivoroid binding on the body are complimented by the custom sunburst top perfectly, providing a very classy finishing touch. This guitar also features upgrade Nickel Waverly tuners and a custom tigerstripe pickguard.

Accompaniments like the Adirondack bracing and the removal of the tongue brace make this guitar that much more menacing. Adirondack Bracing offers a more efficient transfer of string energy to the top, since Adirondack is much stiffer than the standard Sitka braces. This allows for a more responsive and powerful sound board.

Please take a moment to view the video below which outlines the process Colling's uses to create this guitars gorgeous custom Sunburst top.

Collings OM1 A Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany with No Tongue Brace

 Collings OM1 A Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany with No Tongue Brace

The Collings OM1A is a classic Collings model, a shop favorite, and while it takes it's inspiration from the original models, Collings has subtly upgraded these with their signature style, and tone. OM stands for Orchestra Model, but 80 years after this body shape was first designed it has become the most popular 14-fret model with fingerstyle guitar soloists who choose to play on steel strings. Collings has transformed the standard OM, into a true "do it all" instrument.

This OM1A packs a serious punch, with killer volume and presence - easily acting as a dreadnought alternative. This  OM1A has a superb balance and clarity, each note stands out in chordal accompaniment, as well as lead lines.

The Adirondack top adds a tremendous amount of headroom, crisp trebles, and gut-punching mids. It takes to a flatpick beautifully, but sings with bare fingers as well. You know the feeling when you're holding that guitar? - this is that guitar.

The Figured Mahogany back and sides are perfect for players who find rosewood too boomy. Lead players will appreciate the enhanced note definition and clarity, especially through the midrange frequencies.

We are also a big fan of leaving the tongue brace out of these instruments. As people search for the mythical tone of old guitars, this brace comes into scrutiny. Martin added the tongue brace in 1940 and it has become standard every since.

The absence of a tongue brace frees the top to allow enhanced vibration and results in a richer, fuller, tone with more low end resonance. It is speculated that Martin added the brace to prevent top cracking, but the years have proven this to have been unnecessary and actually decreases resonation.

Finished with Collings high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, the detail in the Mahogany on this guitar is absolutely gorgeous.

Collings OM2H Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood

 Collings OM2H Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood

‘OM’ stands for “Orchestra Model,” but 80 years after this body shape was first designed it has become the most popular 14-fret model with fingerstyle guitar soloists who choose to play on steel strings… flatpickers also find it very appealing as the OM body shape allows for a more balanced tonal fingerprint than a Dreadnought would. No wonder that when Eric Clapton recorded his famous " Unplugged" record,  he chose an OM body size!

The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch. The tone is focused and powerful, as are all Collings' guitars.

The topwood on this Collings OM2H is Sitka Spruce, paired with rosewood back and sides.  This is a classic combination that is highly versatile for many playing styles.  Sitka can be played fingerstyle or with a flatpick and can excel at both.  It is ideal for flatpickers who don't require the stiffness of Adirondack, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch.  When combined with rosewood on the back and sides, Sitka is very lush and has a warm, rich low end.

The highs are also crystal clear on a Collings, since only the highest grade Sitka Spruce is chosen for their instruments.  You really can't go wrong with this model!

Collings Guitars CJ35 SB Sitka Spruce and Mahogany

Hear This Instrument: Collings Guitars CJ35 SB Sitka Spruce and Mahogany
Recorded In-House on a Sony PCM-D50 handheld recorder with no compression or eq.
 Collings Guitars CJ35 SB Sitka Spruce and Mahogany

The Collings Jumbo, or CJ, is their interpretation of the classic slope-shouldered dreadnought, a shape that has enjoyed popularity for many years. While the CJ is similar in shape and depth to the traditional dreadnought, it has a distinctly different tone, determined by the rounded shoulders, bridge placement, sound-hole position, body depth, and slightly wider (16") lower bout.

Despite its large size this model works well with the shorter scale lengths, resulting in a somewhat percussive bottom end ideal for acoustic blues or other styles that benefit from a more controlled bass response.  The iconic slope dreadnoughts of the 60's were popular for playing styles from finger picking to strumming chords, for blues, ballads, pop, & more... These styles live on today in the modern Americana & roots music movements.

We are pleased to present this Collings CJ35 as a result from a collaboration between Bill Collings and Jim Baggett wherein Collings used one of Mr. Baggett's personal vintage J-35's as the inspiration for a lighter, woodier-sounding slope-shouldered dread. Designed as a short scale classic, the new Collings CJ35 is a powerhouse of a slope shouldered dread, with a focused, mid-range boom and open responsiveness not often found in a new guitar. Take the dry, hollow sound of a great vintage instrument, add a little sparkle and fatness to the trebles, and you'll have some idea of  the tone for the new CJ35.

This instrument features a 24 7/8" scale, lessening overall string tension for ease of fretting with your left hand while providing a quick response to light attack with your right hand. The sound is compressed significantly and the short scale makes me feel like a real guitar player. It’s really amazing what a fraction of an inch can do, giving you easier reach and less tension.

In standard specification this new model from Collings features a Select Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, pictured here with a dark walnut stain to compliment the signature sunburst top finish. Additional custom appointments on this wonderful instrument include the Wenge (African Rosewood) fretboard and bridge, Tigerstripe pick guard, nickel Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons, ivoroid body binding and matching rosette (nitrocellulose high gloss body finish) and grained Ivoroid bridge pins.

Look for our next CJ35 to arrive shortly with an optional German Spruce top!
