(NEW) Collings D2HA-T Traditional Dreadnought, Adirondack Top, Madagascar Rosewood – SOLD

(NEW) It is an honor and a privilege to present to you what we feel might be the perfect dreadnought.  This new D2HA-T from Collings has it all… a gorgeous, wide-grained Adirondack spruce with hints of bear claw atop quarter sawn Madagascar rosewood back and sides… Collings’ new Traditional construction and appointments, which include fish-glue construction, the new Traditional neck carve (based on the Vintage Now profile, 1 3/4″ nut and 2 5/16″ saddle spacing) and just so… much… TONE.

Let’s back up a little bit.  Recently, Collings and some of their collaborators wanted to explore a more vintage-inspired voice, and by making some slight bracing adjustments, switching to a thinner nitrocellulose lacquer finish, making a larger neck standard and going for an overall lighter build, they’ve achieved something wonderful: a highly responsive guitar with a bigger low end presence than their standard build, a warmer midrange, and their standard *perfect* fit, finish, fretwork and intonation.  They’ve added a rolled edge to the fingerboard for a more vintage feel, and developed slightly different cosmetics with a new herringbone top border and a new rosette design.

This instrument screams!  Under a flatpick, it is room-filling, dynamic and sensitive with seemingly limitless headroom.  The Adirondack spruce adds a sparkle while the Madrose brings a complex and satisfying blend of overtones, approaching and possibly matching the depth of Brazilian rosewood.  It’s just awesome.  This is a lot of guitar, it will easily become the only rosewood dread that you need.

Includes the lightweight and impeccably designed Collings hardshell case, a work of art art unto itself.
