2002 Collings D1AV – £3799

NEW ARRIVAL  The Collings D1AV is extraordinarily loud. The Adirondack Spruce top favours a strong pick attack and provides the ample headroom and power needed to cut through bluegrass ensembles. The Mahogany back and sides keep your lead lines clear and distinct. Volume aside, this guitar is also incredibly balanced in it’s frequency response. Notes are rich and full all the way up and down the neck. The midrange and high-end sparkle will cut through any studio or on-stage mix with ease. The lows are balanced, defined, well rounded, and never boomy. Collings ‘Vintage Now’ neck is the perfect compromise for many players that think a modern neck is too flat in profile, yet the typical neck on a 40’s style instrument is too thick. Collings’ exclusive neck profile is uniquely adapted to players looking for vintage width and girth, with contemporary playability. The slightly wider string spacing at both ends of the guitar also makes fingerstyle playing and chordal accompaniment more enjoyable. The guitar is in very good, played condition. Those 22 years of play have really opened the tone up, and it sounds far more mature than it’s years would suggest. It’s a truly exceptional instrument. The guitar has an LR Baggs Anthem pickup fitted, and comes in a non original hard case.
