Pre-Owned 2013 Collings D1A VN Adirondack and Mahogany with Vintage Now Neck ID-7392
Pre-Owned 2013 Collings D1A VN Adirondack and Mahogany with Vintage Now Neck
Collings brings new clarity to the depth and warmth associated with large, deep-bodied dreadnought guitars. The bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, however, Collings D1 Series Mahogany dreads are employed by some of the busiest bluegrass flatpickers in the business, such as Andy Falco of the Stringdusters and Adam Aijala of Yonder Mountain String Band. This Collings D1A VN is extraordinarily loud. The Adirondack Spruce top loves to be played loud and provides ample headroom and power needed to cut through bluegrass ensembles. The Mahogany back and sides keep your lead lines clear and distinct, just like the classic flatpicking recordings we've grown to love from players like Clarence White, Doc Watson, and Norman Blake.
Volume aside, this guitar is also incredibly balanced in it's frequency response. Notes are rich and full all the way up and down the neck. The midrange and high-end sparkle will cut through any mix, either in the studio or on-stage. The lows are balanced, defined, well rounded, and never boomy.
The Vintage Now neck is a custom appointment on this instrument and is coupled with a 1 3/4" nut and 2 1/4" string spacing at the saddle. Collings Vintage Now neck is the perfect compromise for many players that think a modern neck is too flat in profile, yet the typical neck on a 40's style instrument is too thick. Collings' exclusive neck profile is uniquely adapted to players looking for vintage width and girth, with contemporary playability.
The slightly wider string spacing at both ends of the guitar also makes fingerstyle playing and chordal accompaniment more enjoyable. With a traditional "cut-through" saddle there should be no doubt as to the inspiration for this beast.
This Pre-Owned 2013 Collings D1A VN Adirondack and Mahogany with Vintage Now Neck is in excellent condition with no play wear or fret wear to mention.
Priced accordingly, this is a classic flat picking machine that will be as comfortable as your favorite pair of boots! Includes Original Collings Hardshell Case.
