Collings D2H Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar #27249


Visually, we’ve been super impressed by the grain on this D2H here at MGS! The Sitka Spruce top is very tight and straight. The rosewood is a beautiful dark, rich coffee color with incredibly tight grain as well. The sound only backs up it’s ridiculously good looks. Big, full bass and the clear, chimey highs that Collings are known for. This thing has volume! A banjo killer for sure! This is one of the liveliest Sitka tops we’ve came across. This one will absolutely rival most Adirondack spruce top Dreads. This is a true stunner that we couldn’t be more proud to have in our shop!

The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not theonly company to build them, we bring a new tonal clarity to the depth andwarmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although itsbass 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.
