Collings Guitars D1 Custom

In the guitar world, the dreadnought is the most popular guitar shape. Loved for its loud volume and defining presence, this body size was popularized in the 30's and has kept up with the fame until today. This Collings Guitars D1 Custom gives a modern nod with traditional appointments and many one-of-a-kind custom features.

Constructed with a Baked Sitka top and Mahogany back and sides; this Collings will fulfill all (and any) of your Mahogany guitar dreams. When baked, Sitka opens up and becomes warmer (broken-in) sounding, giving you a mellower high end and rounded lows. This torification process allows a new guitar to come straight out of the case with a more vintage tone on the first strum. This guitar has also been upgraded with a 1 3/4" nut width, giving ease and versatility when flatpicking or playing fingerstyle. Other wonderful features include: and ebony veneer, standard reddish mahogany back stain, and nickel Waverly tuners.
