Here we have a brand new Collings D3A Baked Top dreadnought guitar. “The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, we bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles. The wide range of woods and neck sizes offered allow dreadnought fans to find a Collings model ideally suited to their playing style and tonal preference."
Basic Specs: Gold Waverly Butterbean tuners. 1 3/4 inch Bone nut. Mahogany neck with a 25.5 inch scale length. Neck depth of .85 inches at the first fret and 1.05 inches at the twelfth fret. Ivoroid bound Ebony fingerboard with 20 medium Nickel-Silver frets and a compound 14 to 26 inch radius. The neck profile also changes from rounded to a more v shape as you move beyond the ninth fret. Carefully selected Baked (Torrefied) Adirondack Spruce top and East Indian Rosewood back and sides. Ebony bridge with Bone saddle. Tortoise style pickguard and abalone rosette.
This is a classic instrument that will satisfy the most discriminating players. We believe Collings is making some of the finest guitars you can find anywhere in the world and we’re proud to be a Collings dealer. Take one home and find out what all the buzz is about.
