Collings D3 Guitar with Adirondack Spruce and No Tongue Brace Pre-Owned 2014
The Collings D shape has carved a niche for itself as one of the finest guitars available on the market today. (The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular acoustic guitar they make). For those who know, every Collings guitar is meticulously handcrafted, with details like their glass-like finish, warm and open sound, and perfect frets from end to end. They are certainly among the finest luthiers in America.
After 40 years of building guitars, the talented team at Collings have become known for their details. Just look at this pre-owned D3 we have. The bindings around the headstock, fretboard, and body are perfectly bound. Small accents on the rosette and headstock stand out. The heel is perfectly set. With guitars like these, it is hard to imagine wanting anything but this quality and care.
Like the visual appointments, this Collings D3 features sounding appointments like the Adirondack Spruce top that screams with a flatpick. On an open strum, the words clarity and richness come right to mind. The trebles are clean and defined without overpowering the overall richness of the bottom-end. Adirondack Spruce on the top with Adirondack braces makes this guitar incredibly powerful with virtually unlimited headroom and plenty of Adirondack crispness. Add these to the Indian Rosewood appointments, and discover a guitar that will never disappoint or miss a single note.
Other custom appointments on this used guitar include a custom 1 23/32" nut width and the absence of a Tongue Brace. This pre-loved Collings D3 Guitar is in Excellent + Condition with no wear to mention. (It is hard to imagine this guitar, but it was never played and stayed in its case)! We have attempted to capture this in the photo gallery.
Includes a Collings Hardshell Case.
