Collings D2H G Cocobolo

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 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 dread features one of Collings' world famous sunburst tops that is sight to be seen!

This guitar features a custom tonewood combination of German Spruce and South American Cocobolo. Cocobolo is a dense, stiff tropical hardwood from Mexico, cocobolo produces a fairly bright overall tone emphasized by sparkling treble notes. Sonically it resembles koa but resonates a little deeper on the low end. The tone is fast, responsive, and articulate. Another fine custom feature is the adirondack bracing. When builders brace a guitar with adirondack you get a punchier and louder instrument that will remind you of the holy grail Martins from the 30's. Don't miss your chance at this one of a kind custom dreadnought.
