Collings D1A Adirondack Sunburst Traditional

Sold

Brand new Collings D1A "Traditional" Sunburst ~ likely the best boutique dread money can buy! This is a supremely lightweight, huge sounding mahogany dreadnought. The best thing about it, aside from its perfect setup and growly voice, is the bell-like high end. Collings has long been known for its singing treble register, but this guitar has the best elements of a woody, resonant old D-18 high up the fretboard. If you've been waiting for a special Collings D1A, you'll want to pounce on this one. Priced with new Collings-built vintage-style hard case!
