Exceptional original condition. SN: 24729.
1 23/32″ width at nut. 2 5/16″ pin spacing at bridge.
Figured Mahogany back, sides and neck. High grade Adirondack Red Spruce top. Beautiful sunburst finish on the top. Ebony peghead overlay with Collings logo and extra floral inlay. Ebony fingerboard with graduated dot inlays. Body has tortoise outer bindings with multiple wood strip purfling on inside of top edge and single tortoise on back. Bone nut and intonated saddle. Ebony bridge, heelcap, end wedge and all pins. *Ebony Strap button professionally installed in neck heel. Waverly nickel open-back tuners. No tongue brace. Beautifully applied Varnish finish makes this one of the most beautiful D-1A’s we have seen. The finish is so thin you can’t understand how it could be.
The sound is tremendous! Really open and smooth, but with big voice and full balanced range.
This guitar is in very high condition with only a few random touches here and there. If this guitar were ordered today brand new, it would cost over $7,600 at the discounted selling price, considering all of the custom features. Take advantage of wonderfully smooth and powerful sound, with only little signs of previous ownership for only $5,600.
