Collings D1 Mh Custom w/ Herringbone Purfling 2017
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.
The Guitar's beautiful 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 Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition with very light scratches throughout the entire guitar. There is also 2 very small dings on the back (see photos). There is also a missing MOP Dot in the endpin.
