Collings DS2H Adirondack Spruce and East Indian Rosewood
The Collings DS is the original 12-fret dreadnought shape, first designed as an oversized Hawaiian guitar almost a century ago. Collings retained the body shape and wide neck with slotted headstock from that bygone era, but their DS models are thoroughly modern guitars with a unique sound all their own.
This Collings DS2H features an Adirondack top and Indian Rosewood back and sides. Sitka has a lower stiffness-to-weight ratio than Adirondack Red Spruce.
A positive side-effect of a stiffer tonewood is that it doesn't require as much strength (or string attack) to produce high volume. A player with a lighter attack or even fingerstyle players will enjoy the volume level and power of adirondack with almost unlimited volume headroom.
The Indian Rosewood back and sides provides a deep, extended low end when compared to mahogany and certainly shines when combined with Collings tuned Sitka top.
This particular set of Indian Rosewood is not only beautiful, it provides a perfect tone and volume for all styles of play. The low end is clear, distinct and incredibly powerful, without sacrificing the strong high end.
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Very Good condition with light scratches and dings throughout the entire guitar, neck & heastock. With the more prominent dings and scratches on the top. There has also been a strap button added.
Includes Collings TKL Hardshell Case.
