At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be an Authorized Dealer of Collings Guitars. The Collings D1 is an impressive take on the 14-fret Mahogany dreadnought. It features a solid Sitka Spruce top and solid Honduran Mahogany back, sides and neck. Like all Collings dreadnought guitars, this D1 (serial # 22354) has a strong voice, and its tone is extremely well balanced. We ordered this one with Adirondack braces and no tongue brace. The stiff and strong Adirondack braces allow for a more powerful tone than the standard Sitka braces, but the lack of the tongue brace keeps the top light and responsive. This construction essentially allows for a greater dynamic range. You can push the top almost as if it were Adirondack Spruce, but at the same time the top is light and rich in subtlety. We also ordered this guitar with a 1-3/4″ nut width to provide a prewar feel and playability. This D1 is a spectacular guitar, and the bracing configuration allows for a great value in the boutique guitar market. This D1 has list price of $4,050.00.
