Collings D2HBaA Custom Brazilian New – Fresh from our vault, A grade Brazilian that is very reminiscent of some 40’s models with black streaks and figure with a very light orange tint. Both the back & sides are a medium color that is not dark with grain that is clearly visible and overall outstanding in appearance. The Adirondack top is super sweet with wide grain at the bouts and that golden “patina” is offset with the SM Fire pickguard, 1 23/32'' nut width, thru saddle and Adirondack braces round out the custom options. Very older "dry'' sound with thick & fat tone as well as expected full power and response. This is a graded Brazilian Collings guitar which they no longer do, and this is a opportunity to obtain a new one that is. You could place this in the category of a "rarer" Collings instrument. Beautiful in appearance, raw articulated sound that will please you from the first string engagement. Priced with deluxe hard case. Call or email for price.
