Collings D2 Custom w/ Sitka Spruce & Macassar Ebony
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 special and new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar.
Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles. The wide range of woods and neck sizes offered allow dreadnought fans to find a Collings model ideally suited to their playing style and tonal preference.
This Custom D2 has been appointed with Macassar Ebony. Dense and heavy Macassar Ebony boasts a ton of presence and clarity. Macassar is loud with a broad dynamic range with a defined low/low mid range with transparent highs! It enjoys being played loudly & gives off a darker tone very "Vintage Gibson-esque".
This Custom D2 includes custom appointments such as: a 1 3/4" nut width, a Macassar Ebony back & sides, no herringbone purfling, and no stain throughout any parts of the guitar.
