Collings D1AV Adirondack Spruce with Mahogany and Vintage Now Neck Profile

Do not adjust your dial, you are not seeing double! We saw this beaut at the NAMM show and couldn't resist bringing it to our shop. The Collings D1AV or: Dreadnought, Mahogany, Adirondack, with a Vintage Now Neck, has been one of our most popular models. These never seem to last long for the long list of features that makes it a verifiable Bluegrass powerhouse.

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 Collings D1AV is extraordinarily loud. The Adirondack Spruce top favors a strong pick attack and provides the 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.

The Vintage Now neck is a custom appointment on this instrument and is coupled with a 1 3/4" nut and 2 1/4" string spacing at the saddle. Collings Vintage Now neck is the perfect compromise for many players that think a modern neck is too flat in profile, yet the typical neck on a 40’s style instrument is too thick. Collings’ exclusive neck profile is uniquely adapted to players looking for vintage width and girth, with contemporary playability. The slightly wider string spacing at both ends of the guitar also makes fingerstyle playing and chordal accompaniment more enjoyable.
