❌SOLD❌ Collings D2HSB Dreadnought Steel String Sunburst, 2002


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Collings D2HSB is one of the best expressions of the classic Dreadnought steel string guitar design, delivering great tone and playability in a very well built package.

This example of the Collings D2HSB series was built during 2002 in Austin, Texas and pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the sides back and head plate. The neck and body blocks are Mahogany, with Ebony used for the bridge and fingerboard. The body binding includes Herringbone purfling, which accounts for the ‘H’ in the name.

For hardware, the tuners are Waverly open gear models, and there is a classic faux-tortoise pickguard glued to the finish (not directly to the top). There are no installed electronics, this guitar is strictly acoustic.

This fine instrument is in overall very good condition with only light wear to the finish, and light to moderate wear to the frets.

This is a great guitar, with a very full, rich tone with plenty of volume and projection. It plays very well,

This Collings D2HSB is sold with its original Collings branded hard shell case.
