(NEW) This is one of the most drop-dead gorgeous dreadnoughts that we’ve ever seen! A custom D2 (we left off the herringbone this time) with a baked Sitka top (torrefied for stiffness and a more played-in sound) with a perfect shade-burst and stunning Cocobolo back and sides!
The whole package looks fantastic, but even we were amazed by how perfectly book matched the Cocobolo set is, particularly considering that it has ample sapwood. Even the sides are a perfect mirror image of each other. Now you know why we only get about a half dozen Collings a year with Cocobolo, their standards for this wood are extremely high. Bruce knows what he’s doing, and we trust him.
Other custom features on this guitar include Adirondack braces, no tongue brace and 1 3/4″ nut with 2 3/16″ spacing at the saddle. The sound is just glorious, warm and bass-y but with all the shimmering midrange that Collings is known for. We’ll have a demo video recorded soon, but I guarantee that it won’t do it justice. A lifetime guitar if we’ve ever seen one.
Includes TKL hardshell case.
