Pre-Owned 2014 Collings Guitars D1 MH Custom Doghair - 15052

This Collings D1 MH has a gorgeous Doghair finish atop an all mahogany body with pearloid and ivoroid accents. This is a very regal looking guitar that has hardly been played if it was ever played at all. The guitar sounds amazing and is very clear and present in it's note presentation thanks to the mahogany construction. This is a guitar you just don't want to put down once you start playing it.

The mahogany top provides for more sustain, slower attack, as you would expect from a heavier top. Mahogany tops make for a friendly, sweet guitar that does not amplify mistakes. The mahogany back and sides are perfect for players who find rosewood too boomy. Lead players will appreciate the enhanced note definition and clarity, especially through the midrange frequencies.

How did Collings produce this gorgeous doghair finish? Initially the guitar is sprayed black, and then white grain filler is applied. Timing is critical as the filler dries very quickly and excess must be removed while it is still wet. Sanding is out of the question as this would remove the black coat. It is lacquered using polyurethane for the base coat and then nitrocellulose for the latter layers. To accentuate this beautiful finish they have chosen to use Mahogany on the top as opposed to the standard Sitka Spruce. The result is another one of a kind masterpiece from Colling's guitars.

This pre-owned Collings D1 MH is in like new condition with the original hardshell case.
