Collings / D1 Sunburst Rose / Guitar For Sale

The Collings D-1 is one those guitars that get the heart pumping. The 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar in the world, and while Collings is certainly not the only company in the world to build Martin style Dreadnoughts, they do it extremely well, and are among the best out there, if they aren't the best already?! They convince with a combination of power and clarity, which combined with the depth and warmth not usually associated with such a large and deep guitar, is very convincing. While the bass response is ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings dreadnoughts are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers that have to compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and violins. This Collings is fully custom built, that means at our request with Sunburst finish, custom rose inlay on the headstock, and slightly wider neck than the standard 11/16 neck. The Collings D-1 is made with Sitka spruce instead of Adirondack Spruce, Adirondack is clear, loud and projects like a cannon, but many players still find Adirondack too loud and too 'harsh' while Sitka Spruce sounds like it is matured from the start, a little less loud, but with so much more warmth and matured character. Add the typical Collings midrange and they are more appealing to almost all other guitarists.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
