Collings Guitars USED DS1A 12-Fret Slot-Head Dreadnought with Mahogany and Adirondack Spruce

As is true of 12-fret guitars in general, their longer body shape increases the cubic displacement of the instrument's sound chamber as well as the surface area of the instrument's top. This design translates to a touch more horsepower and depth of tone. Moreover, on a 12-fret guitar the bridge is re-positioned such that it is more centrally placed on the soundboard. This feature not only preserves an easy playability, but also provides for a more efficient transfer of the strings vibrational energy. As a result of these unique design characteristics, 12-fret guitars tend to have a voice that is inherently open and warm with a sound that is powerful, smooth, and evenly blended. With this Collings 12-fret dreadnought, the largest of the 12-fret models they make, these signature tonal characteristics are naturally magnified. There is an opulence to this instrument's sound that adds a seductive, lavish grandeur to its voice - simply mesmerizing.

We sold this guitar new in 2013, and it is still in excellent cosmetic condition with only a trace of pick wear and one small top ding to report.

This guitar includes a deluxe Cedar Creek archtop hardshell case. (used)
