Allison D, Brazilian Rosewood

Allison D, Brazilian Rosewood

This is a new Allison Brazilian Rosewood dreadnought. Austin-based John Allison was a key part of the Collings Guitar team for years. John is now one of the most sought-after independent makers of fine instruments in the southwest. His guitars are carried by a number of top dealers in the U.S… and we’ve just snagged this brand new, wonderful Brazilian– a custom order guitar.

Allison’s attention to detail is astounding. You just have to see and play this great brazilian. Right off the bench, it’s loud and beguiling, and it will only get better over time.
