Collings D2HA Adirondack Top with No Tongue Brace Indian Rosewood Back and Sides

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; which when coupled with Adirondack Red Spruce brings the guitar strong fundamentals, a lightning quick response, and crisp trebles. 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.

In combination with an Adirondack Top we are huge fan's 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.
