Collings D1A Vintage Now Neck
Recent Arrival, a gently owned D1A vintage now neck from Collings Guitars... 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 only company to build them, they bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Each and every time we have a Collings D1A in the shop, it is time and time again one of our favorite guitars. This is a custom version featuring a few upgrades along with master grade Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany, brought to life by the masterful builders at Collings!
For the die hard rosewood fans here in the shop, this guitar bridges the gap between rosewood and mahogany, projecting incredibly articulate note definition common with mahogany and the power and low end associated with rosewood.
The Adirondack Spruce drives the top of this guitar and provides ample power and headroom for heavy handed flatpickers.
This is a great feature for players who may be looking for a compromise between the mahogany and rosewood dreadnoughts. It is discussed at length on forums, purported that Martin added the brace to prevent top cracking. With the hybrid neck joint & bolt on neck, Collings has proven this to be an unnecessary concern or worry, and actually decreases resonation of the upper bout.
This instrument is in Excellent Condition with only a few light surface scratches on the top near the pickguard, and underside of the guitar.
Includes Collings Original TKL Hardshell Case.
