The Collings D2H Traditional has become our most popular Collings Dreadnought model thanks to its incredible tone and power and its perfectly carved vintage-inspired neck. This example features a torrefied Sitka top for a dry, woody, and dark response and great looks. The caramel colored spruce has an aged-to-perfection appearance and a voice to match. It’s a loud and strong sounding guitar that’s at home under a hard right hand attack, and it excels at single note melody and rhythmic flatpicking.

This example is built with Indian rosewood back and sides and Sitka spruce top, and features wooden purflings and rosette, ivoroid bindings, zigzag back strip, bevelled tortoise pickguard and Waverly tuners. The neck features a 30’s carve and taper, with a 1-3/4” nut, rounded back that transitions to a softened V by the 7th fret, and Collings’ standard compound radius fingerboard. Vintage through-cut saddle bridge with a 1930’s spec 2-5/16” string spread. The unique traditional-series neck carve and construction is half of the reason for the T-series tonal differences.

Under the hood you’ll find Collings’ Custom Traditional Series pre-war scalloped X-bracing (without tongue brace), and protein-glue construction; and the guitar is finished in an extra-thin Nitro lacquer.
