At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be an Authorized Dealer of Collings guitars. We love the rich overtones of Collings 12-frets. Because of the complexity and harmonics, small-body Collings 12-frets have a strong appeal for fingerstyle players. But when you apply the 12-fret design with a larger body—a dreadnought, for example—the result is a huge-sounding, well-balanced instrument, fitting for even the most heavy handed flatpicker. This DS1 (serial #24786) is a cannon of a dreadnought. Its voice is rich and warm with plenty of power and headroom. It features a solid Sitka Spruce top and solid Honduran Mahogany back, sides and neck. An intensely responsive instrument, this DS1 projects clearly and maintains a great sense of balance despite its powerful bass and mid range warmth. Instruments like this one push the guitar to a different level of response and dynamics. Please call or e-mail for an in-hand description.
