Collings D1A Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar - Adirondack Spruce Top - 1.75" Nut

Play It Loud And Proud With A Collings D1 With Adirondack Spruce Top In Natural Finish With Optional 1.75" Nut

The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is still the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings Guitars is certainly not the only company to build them, they do 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 Guitar versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with the inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles. The wide range of woods and neck sizes offered allow dreadnought fans to find a Collings Guitar model ideally suited to their playing style and tonal preference.

From the starting point of the wood's density and rigidity, each acoustic guitar top is hand sellected, evaluated, and carved to it's own unique thickness, maximizing the tonal potential of each top.Each Collings acoustic guitar , from their mst affordable to the highest end, are built with the finest tonewoods available. Each wood is aquired, aclimated andhand selected by master luthiers here at our shop who pick each component with the whole tonality of the end instrument in mind. A combination of PLEK leveling and hand fret dressing insures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel. Premium Waverly open gear tuners offer exceptional tuning stability and smooth reliable operation. Tortoise shell binding compliments the warm hues of a mahogany back and sides. A pairing of Sitka apruce with a Honduran mahogany back and sides creates a guitar with a crisp yet warm articulation and a beautiful tonal balance.
