This Collings D2H acoustic guitar is a beauty in Collings Guitars dreadnought guitar line. This Collings D2H features a beautiful sunburst stained Sitka spruce top and an ivoroid bound neck and peghead. This guitar really jumps out at you with its beauty and tone.
The Collings D2H model has become one of the standards of the classic American made rosewood dreadnought guitars. It aims for more balance between the bass and treble, so many players who have found rosewood D models by other makers to be lacking in brightness will be pleasantly surprised with the Collings D2H. While rosewood dreadnoughts are often thought of as primarily suited for bluegrass or backup, these have the “crunch and sparkle” that makes them far more versatile and work great for playing closed chord voicings and licks up the neck. The other difference that’s easy to notice is the superior fit and finish, a Collings guitar trademark you’ll find in all their models.
The square shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, they 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.
