Collings D1


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. The wide range of woods and neck sizes offered allow dreadnought fans to find a Collings model ideally suited to their playing style and tonal preference.

Sitka Spruce and Mahogany is a tried and true tested tonewood combination that creates a well rounded instrument with intricate note definition with punchy depth! Mahogany is dry compared to the warm high definition tone of rosewood. Mahogany is very mid range focused with a more mellow low and high end.
