Description

We've got a different sort of Dreadnought here, folks. The Collings team has a well-earned reputation for producing fine guitars, but this 2005 D2HBaaaA is something else entirely. For starters, its way more responsive than a dreadnought ought to be capable of, and has an upper register which sounds sweeter the higher you travel up the Ebony fretboard. With medium gauge strings, this D2HBaaaA has heaps of projection and good sustain, with some sweet, mellow overtones in the mids. Strummed, the Dreadnought plays very easily; with an aggressive fingerstyle attack, it sings. Of course, all of this is made possible by the quality of work that goes into each guitar, and a gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood back and sides with chocolate tones and an Adirondack Spruce top for all that sweet, balanced tone in the middle registers. This Dreadnought will feel perfectly at home on your lap for whatever style of music you throw at it, from Bluegrass to Jazz. This guitar comes with a TKL hardshell case.

I continue to be impressed by the consistently well-built nature of instruments from Collings. They work with a miniscule margin of error, so each time I pick one of their guitars up, I know it's going to blow me away. This is a Dreadnought with a more balanced, sweet tone than I'm used to--but I like it! The bass is clear but not overpowering, so those crisp highs can ring freely.
 
This is an amazing dreadnought. It plays great and it looks great too. The yellowed binding and varnish give it a vintage look and the tone is killer. Designed to cut through in a bluegrass band, this guitar will make someone very happy.
