Collings D1H Mahogany Herringbone with No Tongue Brace ID-8771


Collings D1H Mahogany Herringbone with No Tongue Brace

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. This Collings D1HMh is truly a wonderful Dreadnought and has a few custom appointments such as no Fingerboard Inlay or Tongue Brace, Herringbone Purfling, nickel Waverly tuners with Ebony buttons and a
beautiful Walnut Stain. 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, we bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar.

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.

Hardshell Case is Included.
