Collings D2HA Adirondack Spruce and Indian Rosewood No Tongue Brace and Adirondack Bracing

The Collings D2HA is a standard model in our shop. It has commanding presence with balanced tone and clarity. The Indian Rosewood brings the guitar balance and warmth, and when coupled with Adirondack Red Spruce, brings the guitar strong fundamentals, a lightning quick response, crisp trebles, and virtually unlimited headroom. Adirondack was the legendary topwood used on most pre-war American-made guitars. Adirondack has a high stiffness across and along the grain, making it one of the go-to topwoods for flatpickers. The D2HA is a guitar you take to battle, the guitar you fight for... and fight with!

How do you make the D2HA even better? Add custom options such as Adirondack Bracing, removing the tongue brace, and add a custom 1 23/32" nut width.

Adirondack Bracing has a higher stiffness to weight ratio, offering a more efficient transfer of string energy to the top. This allows for a more responsive and powerful sound board. Since the bracing is so much stiffer, volume becomes virtually limitless.

We are also a big fan of leaving the tongue brace out of these instruments. As people search for the mythical tone of old guitars, this brace certainly comes into scrutiny. Martin added the tongue brace in 1940 and it has become standard every since. The absence of a tongue brace frees the top at the upper bout to allow enhanced vibration and results in a richer, fuller, tone with more low end resonance and overall responsiveness. It is speculated that Martin added the brace to prevent top cracking, but the years have proven this to have been unnecessary and actually decreases resonation.
