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 model comes with the classic Spruce/Rosewood timber combination, Pre-war scalloped bracing, High gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, ebony fingerboard with ebony belly-style bridge with mother of pearl diamond and square fingerboard inlays, and Nickel Waverly tuners with 16:1 ratio. This fine instrument comes with a Collings deluxe hardshell case by TKL.
