Collings D1

The Collings D1 has an incredibly balanced frequency response. The 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 and the lows are balanced, defined, well rounded, and never boomy.

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 features a Sitka Spruce top. 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.

When torrefied, Sitka Spruce becomes very open and responsive. It's noticeably warmer and more-open sounding, with the woodiness, snap and depth of a well played-in guitar. A joy to play, and a fingerpicker's..or flatpicker's dream guitar.

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. 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.

This Collings OM1 is simply appointed with Tortoise style body and fretboard binding, an ebony fretboard and headstock overlay, finished off with Nickel Waverly tuners. The 1 11/16" standard nut width has been upgraded to a 1 3/4" nut for easier fingering of chord shapes.
