Collings D1H Mahogany Herringbone

There are certain traditions and build philosophies that are engrained in our minds over the years. For some reason or another, herringbone purfling is usually reserved for rosewood guitars. No we don't want to step on any toes, but the real shame behind this idea is the tonal difference a herringbone purfling brings to ANY guitar. In our experience, mahogany dreadnoughts with herringbone are nothing short of brilliant. So, we ordered an all mahogany Collings D1H and awaited the results. We are pleased to say that it is quite the breathtaking guitar! Like most all Collings, this guitar has a ample volume and presence.

This guitar excels at fingerstyle playing while also providing great projection and depth when strummed and flatpicked. The all-mahogany construction provides a clear, woody, dry and airy tone that is very balanced and smooth thanks to the masterful voicing. The advantage to using herringbone is the edge of the top must be routed slightly larger to accommodate for the width of the purfling. It results in a more resonate and responsive top - right out of the box. Additional custom appointments include upgraded nickel Waverly tuners with Ebony buttons. This D1H has a wonderful breathe and life to it. Surely not to be missed!
