Altman A-D2 Cocobolo Rosewood 1937 Model New - The most authentic pre-war sounding instruments we've ever encountered with that big fat dry deep tone, crystal clarity in every register and unsurpassed dominating power. Prolific "woody" open overall sound that responds instantly to your command with no muddy or metallic overtones, just pure performance that is so reminiscent of that "golden era" nearly 80 years ago. Built to 1936-1938 specifications entirely by hand, Adirondack Spruce top, forward shifted scalloped Adirondack braces, no tongue brace, 1 ¾’’ bone nut width, Ebony traditional bridge and fingerboard, original style Herringbone top trim, solid bone bridge pins with red-eye inlay, beautiful orange-brownish colored Cocobolo back & sides, Honduran Mahogany neck, thru saddle, Tortoise grain pickguard, traditional style rosette, original style fingerboard inlay, Waverly “Relic” Butterbean tuners, “antiqued” top aging toner, 2 5/16’’ string spacing and varnish finish. This may be the closest you will experience to that "sound" and the people who have obtained one, will verify this as several of them own pre-wars. Priced with deluxe hard case.

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. List $11,275.00. Call or email for price.
