Collings D1

collings close frontThis is a 14 fret Collings Mahogany Dreadnaught. Of course, that doesn’t tell the whole story. There is the beautiful spruce top with swirling figuring almost like “bear claw” pattern, the comfortable “C” neck and the subtly elegant build quality throughout. This guitar has a robust bass response and nice zinging highs, hard to get in one guitar.  There is a nuanced feel to light picking , but it firms up when you dig in hard.  I really enjoyed playing this guitar. I wish I could sit and play it for a couple of hours. There’s a lot to discover in this guitar …very, very nice
