Details

Powerful, commanding, and classic, the Collings 14-fret square-shouldered dreadnought builds on the legacy of the great Martin dreadnoughts that came before it. With an Adirondack spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the D1A combines the specs of a pre-war D-18 with Collings' tirelessly precise craftsmanship and modern playability. Minimal appointments keep the focus on what matters most with this dread: the incredible punch and dynamic range Adirondack provides, and the dry, woody, rumbling tone we all love about a good mahogany D.

Please note: This model has 1-3/4" nut width, not 1-11/16".
