Adirondack Red Spruce braces
1- 11/16 width at nut
This new D-1 Mahogany Custom guitar is a great one straight out of the box from Collings. Built with an eye on the early D-18’s from the mid 1930’s, this guitar exhibits beauty, power and projection.
Mahogany back, sides and neck. Select Sitka Spruce top with Adirondack forward shifted scalloped bracing. Our choice of Red Spruce braces under the Sitka top insures a snappy attack and an overall presence that helps you punch through a crowd in an acoustic setting. This particular guitar is no exception to that rule.
