1997 Collings D2H


This guitar just celebrated her 25th birthday in all her fully open top Collings greatness.  No pickguard from factory.  I have been the owner of this guitar for about the last 22 years.  It has been only in my home with an occasional excursion.  Developed a top seam crack at least 10 years ago.  It has always been stable but I took it to a luthier to professionally repair anyway.  

This 1997 Collings D2H Rosewood dreadnaut has a fully developed tone, with big open voice and excellent playability.
Indian Rosewood back and sides, with high grade Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany neck. Brazilian Rosewood peghead veneer has Collings pearl logo inlaid at top. Nickel Waverly pre-war style open-back tuners. Gabon Ebony fingerboard has abalone cut diamond inlays. Frets are in great condition with light wear (see pics). Body is bound top and back with ivoroid outer bindings. Inside edge of top shows wooden herringbone purfling. Back of body shows multiple binding lines inside ivoroid strip and in almost mint condition. Traditional wooden marquetry zipper back strip in center of Rosewood back.  Ivoroid multiple end wedge. Ivoroid heelcap. Gabon Ebony bridge with boxed intonated bone saddle.  No factory pickguard.  

Professional setup and great sound. Not sure if this is original hard case or not but it is the case that it came with when I bought it and has been it's home for 25 years.  I am selling frankly because these Collings have gotten really valuable and I have cheaper guitars that won't wake the neighbor's baby up.  I have excellent ratings on Reverb.  Thank you for looking!
