As one of three guitars made from a fabled tree of Cuban Mahogany, this Collings D1A Special is a rare guitar with a truly desirable tone.  With its hand-voiced, hand selected Adirondack Spruce top, this guitar packs a punch with a poignant mid range, open top end, and the robust lows that you would expect from a dreadnought style guitar. The incredibly figured tight grain of the Cuban Mahogany gives this guitar an incredible aesthetic appeal. Its “Modified V” neck profile and compound 14”-26” fretboard radius give this guitar a comfortable feel across the length of the neck. With its rare wood, and unmatched tone, this Collings D1A Special truly is a “special” guitar, and it lives up to its name.
