Hi Tom. Thanks for the add. I am selling my 06 D1AV sb (dark '37 style sunburst. ) I have a D1AV lefty varnish that I'm going to Austin to pick up in 2 weeks. The guitar is tremendously powerful. I'm not out to build a collection. I have one great Collings braz dread, and a '92 Gibson AJ with the top refinished in varnish for a festival guitar. In this economic climate I'm asking $3K plus shipping & insurance.
Hi Tom. The guitar is 1 3/4" at the nut, and 2 3/8th" string spacing at the bridge. This is the Collings "Vintage" spec. It is the big neck with a flare towards the 12th fret to give the wide spacing. V & mod V are Martin designations. Collings V stands for "vintage". This profile has enough V shape to be comfortable playing thumb-wrap F chords in first position. My best description of the neck is that it i not round shaped like a Collings C10 or Gibson. I find it very comfortable & soft rather than sharp under the thumb of the fretting hand (I would call it a soft or modified V) I copied this profile from my original 2000 D1AVL and my new varnish D1AV has a neck made off the template for this 06. There are 2 photos of it in my photos on my profile page. Thanks
