Collings D2HMRA with Torrefied Adirondack Spruce and Madagascar Rosewood ID-9465


Collings D2HMRA with Torrefied Adirondack Spruce and Madagascar Rosewood

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 first to build them, they bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. This custom Collings D2HMRA does have some very special custom appointments. These include a unique Torrefied Adirondack Spruce top, rare Madagascar Rosewood back and sides, combined with Adirondack Spruce Bracing.

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.

This instrument features a Torrefied Adirondack spruce top and Madagascar Rosewood Madagascar resonates evenly responsive 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.

Adirondack is much stiffer than Sitka Spruce, resulting in quick response and tremendous volume. When coupled with the Madagascar Rosewood, notes are airy, crisp, meaty, and well defined... it also happens to be incredibly beautiful in appearance as well.
