Collings D2H - Adirondack Top - Wenge Back & Sides #23118 Item #23118

Featuring an Adirondack Spruce Top, with Wenge back and sides. Builders compare Wenge favorably to Brazilian Rosewood. It is articulalte, dynamic, and powerful. Wenge is dimensionally stable and straight grained with a beautiful dark chocolate brown color. 

The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, they bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles.
