Collings D1M Custom Mahogany Top Acoustic Guitar

COLLINGS D1M CUSTOM MAHOGANY TOP

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, they 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.

This custom-built model replaces the usual Sitka spruce top with fine Honduran Mahogany, with Honduran Mahogany back and sides, pre-war scalloped Sitka Spruce bracing, high-gloss ultra-thin Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, ebony fingerboard with ebony belly-style bridge and mother of pearl dot fingerboard inlays, and Nickel Waverly tuners. Simply one of the finest dreadnoughts that we have ever had in the store. Complete with a Collings hardshell case by TKL.
