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.

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.

This Guitar is in Very Good condition with 1 tiny indentation at the rosette, light scratches on the pickguard, and very light towel marks on the back.
