Acoustic Flat TopNew Collings D1

The D1 is Collings take on the traditional, mahogany, 14 fret dreadnought. Featuring a solid sitka top, solid mahogany back and sides, a modified v neck, tortoise binding, ebony fingerboard and bridge, mop inlay, pre-war style scalloped bracing, Waverly tuners, and finished in high gloss nitrocellulose. We made a few changes from the normal specifications on this guitar, including a 1 23/32" nut width, Adirondack bracing, and the exclusion of the tongue brace. The wider nut gives a little more room to move, without being as wide as 1 3/4". Our own Eli just ordered his new D1 with this slightly wider nut, and having spent seven years as a builder at Collings before coming to Willie's, he brings some great insights to the table. The Adi bracing stiffens the sitka top, giving a bit more volume and headroom, while the absence of the tongue brace lends to a more open and resonant voicing. Comes with a nice, Geib style case.
