This Collings D1A Varnish was custom ordered through our shop in 2006; and we remember it fondly as one of the best sounding Collings guitars we've ever had! At the time of the order, a darker, 1930's Martin-style sunburst was requested (Collings was not then offering a 'Dark Sunburst' like they do now on their Traditional line). Under the ambery varnish finish, this particular 'burst looks simply sublime; and the tone of this guitar leaves nothing on the table. It's incredibly loud and powerful, with the open, throaty growl that has made a D1A Varnish the envy of flatpickers worldwide.
This guitar remains in mostly excellent condition. There are a couple noticeable dings on the top, which are only revealed with a close inspection. The varnish finish, which is softer than lacquer, does show handling marks with ease; but none of the wear on this guitar is out of line with regular use over the last 16 years. We think the incredible sound and looks more than make up for any minor signs of playwear! Priced with its original hard case. On consignment; shipping calculated at checkout.
