This DS1A is the original 12-fret dreadnought shape, first designed as an oversized Hawaiian guitar almost a century ago built with an Adirondack top and Mahogany back and sides. Collings has retained the shape and wide neck with slotted headstock from that bygone era, but their DS models are thoroughly modern guitars with a unique sound all their own. The longer body, with the bridge closer to the center of the lower bout, delivers an open, airy tone with smoothness and warmth not typically found in modern, 14-fret dreadnoughts. Whether flatpicked or played fingerstyle, these guitars have lots of headroom and the wide dynamic range invites everything from mellow accompaniment to biting leads.
This is a pre owned 2016 model in basically mint pristine condition. If your like looking for a like new 12 fret dreadnought, this is it.
Includes original deluxe Collings hardshell case.
