Collings D1 A Adirondack and Mahogany 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 Collings D1 A 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.

This instrument includes custom Adirondack braces. Adirondack braces are thinner and lighter making the guitar much more resonant and open.
