Collings Dreadnought

Wonderful Instrument,

The square-shouldered 14-fret is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the first to build them, we 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. The wide range of woods and neck sizes offered allow dreadnought fans to find a Collings model ideally suited to their playing style and tonal preference.

They build a guitar that is a work of art as well a beautiful instrument to play. If you are ever in Austin take the tour of the shop, laid back fun people to be around, including Bill, who most people, even after being introduced to him, do not realize he is the owner.
