Collings D2H MR A VN Adirondack Spruce and Madagascar Rosewood Pre-Owned 2015 Guitar

There is something about a Collings Dreadnought that with just one strum the room turns around to see what it it. This Collings D2H MR A VN dreadnought is built with one of our favorite wood combos - Adirondack Top and Madagascar Rosewood Back & Sides.

As you know Adirondack is much stiffer than Sitka Spruce, resulting in quick response and tremendous volume. And with the Madagascar Back it resonates evenly across the entire tonal register and provides a crisp, sparkling treble commonly associated with Brazilian Rosewood. Madagascar is also becoming very scarce and this is a fantastic example of what a master luthier can do with the wood. Our friends at Collings currently don't know when they will be getting more Madagascar so this is your opportunity to add a monster to your collection.

Some additional custom features of this guitar is the tongue brace has also been left off allowing for the Adirondack Spruce top to resonate a bit more freely. Additionally, this instrument features a Vintage Now Neck profile. The Vintage Now neck is coupled with a 1 3/4" nut and 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle. Collings Vintage Now neck is the perfect compromise for many players that think a modern neck is too flat in profile, yet the typical neck on a 40's style instrument is too thick.

It is in near mint condition with 2 tiny indentations at the rosette. It comes with a Collings Hardshell Case.
