Collings D2H G Adirondack Bracing w/ German 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. The Collings D2H is a powerful dreadnought without any compromise.
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 custom German Spruce top is a favorite here at Artisan due to it's versatility when played fingerstyle or flatpicked. German Spruce offers rich, complex overtones and regarding stiffness, falls in between Sitka and Adirondack.
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 Combined w/ custom no Tongue Brace gives stronger vibration throughout the top. This guitar also features a custom 1 3/4" nut width.
It takes to a flatpick beautifully, but sings with bare fingers as well. Indian Rosewood is warm and rounded with complex overtones.
