Collings D2H G Adirondack Bracing w/ German Spruce and Indian Rosewood
Collings D2H G - German Spruce, Adirondack Braces & No Tongue Brace PreOwned 2018
This instrument has micro-towel marks from being wiped down in our shop during demonstration and may have fret wear, both so fine they cannot be shown in photographs. It is being sold as a used instrument with no factory warranty. There are no other defects or blemishes to report, and it conforms to factory setup and fully functions as designed.
The Collings D2H is a powerful dreadnought without any compromise. 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 custom German Spruce top is a favorite here at Artisan due to it's versatility when played fingerstyle or flatpicked. German Spruce offers rich, complex overtones and regarding stiffness, falls in between Sitka and Adirondack.
The custom Adirondack Braces are lighter and stiffer than Sitka, therefore they are more responsive and offer a more efficient transfer of energy through the top. This Combined w/ custom no Tongue Brace gives stronger vibration throughout the top. This guitar also features a custom 1 3/4" nut width.
It takes to a flatpick beautifully, but sings with bare fingers as well. Indian Rosewood is warm and rounded with complex overtones.
