Using the popular dreadnought body, this 14 fret acoustic guitar delivers deep tones, unmatched by most other dreadnought bodies. The Collings D1 is a masterpiece... and the perfect balance between clarity and warmth. The best feature of the D1 is the select spruce top, which highlights the warmth and roundness of its tone. The sides and back are cut from Honduran Mahogany, making it not only beautiful, but reliable too.
