Collings D3H A Guitar Adirondack Spruce Top and Indian 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 only company to build them, they 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.

Adirondack Spruce, "the holy grail" of topwoods, drives the top of this powerful instrument. Adirondack is generally favored by heavy handed players, and provides nearly unlimited headroom when you need the extra power.

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 barces makes this guitar incredibly powerful with virtually unlimited headroom and plenty of Adirondack crispness.

The gorgeous set of Indian Rosewood on the back and sides broadens out the dynamic range, bringing overtones, rich low-end and mellow yet defined trebles. When fingerpicking, each note is rich and warm, yet well defined and easily articulated.

This guitar is loaded with upgrades. This custom D3 features herringbone, a cutthrough saddle and no tongue brace.
