Collings D1 Sitka and Mahogany with Adirondack Bracing and No Tongue Brace

If there is anything the folks at Collings know, and they know quite a lot - it is dreadnoughts. 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 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 standard D1 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 dreads!

This instrument also features Adirondack Bracing and No Tongue Brace. The Adi bracing tends to stiffen the Sitka top and make it that much more powerful, with a slightly quicker attack. The removal of the tongue brace allows more resonation at the upper bout. Another custom feature on this Collings D1 is a 1 3/4" nut width for those who prefer a bit wider neck.
