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. The D1 features a Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, put together with upgraded Adirondack spruce bracing. Minimal appointments keep the focus on what matters most with this dread: its dry, woody tone, with that midrange bark and Collings' signature crisp trebles, and a wide dynamic range. From jam to concert, this workhorse guitar has you covered.
