Collings D41 Guitar with Adirondack Spruce Top and Indian Rosewood back and sides with No Tongue Brace
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.
This Collings D3 features 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 combination of Adirondack and Indian Rosewood is a favored one and supports a wide tonal range that can be used for a multitude of playing styles.
The custom appointments on this guitar include a custom 1 23/32" nut width, 41 Style top border, 42 Style Inlay and Abalone Collings Logo.
