Description

The Collings D1 may well be the best value in the boutique guitar world. It sounds equally warm and punchy in both bluegrass jams and songwriting rounds alike. We hot-rodded this one with Adirondack Spruce bracing, and left out the tongue brace. giving the top some additional responsiveness and projection. Features the standard 1 11/16" nut width. With new Collings-built vintage style hard case!
