Collings "DS" 12-fret slope shoulder dreadnought with optional torrefied Sitka spruce top ($90).
Collings' slope shoulder dreads are among the biggest guitars they make, and they definitely offer the kind of huge, vibrant tone you'd expect from an instrument this size.
Tonally, this guitar is a bit more dry and crisp than the rosewood versions we've played. Tons of bass and projection--this would be an ideal bluegrass/country guitar for folks who want something a little different from the pack.
