Collings D2G Wenge German Spruce and Wenge
A Collings D2G is always an instant shop favorite. This one features not just a German Spruce top, but Adirondack Spruce bracing and no tongue brace. We love German Spruce here at Artisan because it not only offers a rich and complex tone, but is versatile for many different playing styles.
German Spruce offers exceptional stiffness together with low weight making the tops more responsive. We often find German to be a perfect compromise between Sitka and Adirondack, since it responds so well to fingerstyle playing and also holds up to a heavy pick attack.
This Custom D2G also features Wenge back and sides. Wenge pronounced (When-Gay) is a dark, purplish-brown-colored African hardwood that has long been used by bowl turners and cabinet/furniture makers. Wenge's characteristic striped texture and black-brown color cannot be mistaken. And Wenge has tonal properties remarkably similar to those of Brazilian rosewood. We invite you to listen to our recording and tell us what you think. We love this guitar and know you will too. It will add something special to your collection.
Additional appointments on this instrument include pre-war scalloped bracing, grained ivoroid top/back body binding and high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
This Pre Owned 2014 D2 is in excellent A+ Condition and comes with original hardshell case.
