Collings D2HA Sb Dreadnought Adirondack and Indian Rosewood
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 top wood 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 top woods for flat-pickers. The D2HA is a guitar you take to battle, the guitar you fight for... and fight with!
Here is what Collings has to say about it on their website:
“The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, we bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles. The wide range of woods and neck sizes offered allow dreadnought fans to find a Collings model ideally suited to their playing style and tonal preference.”
