Collings D2HA Baaa Adirondack and Brazilian Rosewood
This gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, Collings D2HA Baaa has commanding presence with balanced tone and clarity. The beautiful Brazilian Rosewood back and sides 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.
Brazilian Rosewood is an extremely rare tonewood with deep bass and brilliant trebles that was used on the famous vintage guitars we have all grown to love. An international trade embargo on Brazilian rosewood products guarantees that the relatively few sets remaining in this country will continue to spiral in price as the supply dwindles. Brazilian brings remarkable darkness, depth, and warmth while exhibiting glorious overtones across the entire tonal spectrum.
As Brazilian Rosewood is in short supply and no one really knows how much will be available in the years to come, this is an instrument that is sure to climb in rarity and value.
This custom Collings is a rare find for any collector! Collings has been out of Brazilian Rosewood for many years now, so getting your hands on a brazilian dreadnought Collings is a very hard thing to do!
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ only a couple very light dings in the top and some slight finish sinking in the back.
