Collings D2H Natural, 2021

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

One of the best examples of the Dreadnought design available, this Collings D2H Natural is nearly new, built during early 2021 in Austin, Texas. This standard model features Sitka Spruce for the top and bracing, East Indian Rosewood for the sides, back and head plate, Honduran Mahogany for the body blocks and neck, and Ebony for the bridge and fingerboard.

This pristine guitar has virtually no wear and very little playing time, and despite its voice not yet being developed has a full, rich tone with plenty of volume and projection. It is sold with its original Collings branded hard shell case.

Here’s what the builder has to say about the Collings D2H Natural:

“The Collings D2H Natural is based on the square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought design, the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, we bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles. The wide range of woods and neck sizes offered allow dreadnought fans to find a Collings model ideally suited to their playing style and tonal preference.”
