Used Collings D-1A

$3,399.99

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, we 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.

This is a D1A that is near mint Condition, i would be suprised if it has been played 2 full hours in 4 years. The gentleman who bought it from us rarely took it out of the case, eventually deciding he wanted to play more electric guitar.

Its as much a cannon as people have come to expect out of an Adirondack topped Collings. This particular one has a 1-23/32″ nut and is as versatile as it is beautiful!
