The Collings D2H, a crisp, balanced dreadnought guitar, rings with clarity and evenness. The bass response is great and provides enough support without being to overpowering. Single lines sound punchy and thick - a perfect cannon for bluegrass. This versatile D2H is great if you are looking for a high-end rosewood dread. Call us here at Sound Pure for availability and details.
Our first guitar from Collings and we are super pumped! This dread is everything we had hoped and more. It's one of the most crisp and balanced dreadnoughts we've have seen to date. The first thing you notice when you first strum a chord is this balance and clarity. Every note in the chord rings out nice and evenly. Some dreads have a tendency to be too bassy but this is not the case with the D2H. Bass response is good and provides just the right amount of support in this frequency range. The trebles have good overtones but maintain good fundamentals, so single lines sound thick and punchy. Overall, this guitar is one of the louder flattops on our wall. Fit and finish is impeccable as with every Collings you pick up. We've gone with a 1 23/32" nut width on this one. This is right in between 1 3/4" and 1 11/16". This is a really popular nut width for this guitar because it still gives you plenty of room on your open chords without feeling too spacious like some 1 3/4" nuts. If you are looking for a high-end rosewood dread, the D2H should be a heavy contender for you.
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 first 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.
