Collings DS1 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought







Comments Collings guitars are outstanding illustrations of just how consistently good instrument construction can be. These are just great instruments.

The Collings DS1 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought is a re-creation of the original dreadnought design, using the early slope-shoulder, 12-fret neck configuration.

In their originally form, these instruments were targeted towards Hawaiian style players, so the tonal output is very smooth, rich, and full.

There’s a massive presence with sparkling highs, a full yet not overwhelming bottom end, and luscious midrange.

Neck Mahogany neck with unbound ebony fingerboard. 25.5″ scale length with 1 13/16″ nut width. Slotted peghead.
Frets 12 frets to the body, 19 frets total.
Body Slope-shoulder dreadnought body design with Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides and ebony bridge. Pre-war type scalloped bracing is used, and faux tortoise binding and pickguard sets off the body.

15 5/8″ maximum body width, maximum depth 4 7/8″.

Finish Gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Hardware/electronics Waverly tuning gears, bone nut and saddle.
Playability/Action Collings instruments play really well with the factory setup, and we will of course make any adjustments required by the player.
Case Collings deluxe hardshell case included.
