Collings C 10 Sitka Spruce and Mahogany with Deep Body ID-7769


Collings C 10 Sitka Spruce and Mahogany with Deep Body

We have fallen madly in love with C-10s of all kinds lately. The variety of custom options are somewhat dizzying, but we have listened to your requests and built some of the most popular combinations. The newest addition has an extra deep body, Sitka Spruce top, and Collings killer sunburst. It channels a very Nick Lucas-esque vibe: but with the signature sustain and power Collings' are known for. From Dylan folk hybrid strumming to blues fingerpicking - this Collings C10 delivers!

The C-10 is built with a narrow waist and small upper bout; resulting in a precise, focused response. The smaller upper bout is gratifying and untroubled - a true dream to play. It's this unique body size that allows the C-10 to project a more focused mid-range then other smaller bodied guitars. The extra deep (4 3/4) body depth is the secret to this model. The increased size brings an added level of projection, power, strong bass presence, and rounded trebles. The response to fingerpicking is just incredible!

The Sitka top adds a tremendous amount of headroom, crisp trebles, and gut-punching mids. It takes to a flatpick beautifully, but sings with bare fingers as well.

Custom appointments abound on this instrument, including the tortoise rosette, top and back binding, Wenge fingerboard and bridge, tortoise tear drop pickguard and vintage now neck profile.

The Vintage Now neck is coupled with a 1 3/4" nut and 2 1/4" string spacing at the saddle. Collings Vintage Now neck is the perfect compromise for many players that think a modern neck is too flat in profile, yet the typical neck on a 40's style instrument is too thick. Collings' exclusive neck profile is uniquely adapted to players looking for vintage width and girth, with contemporary playability. The slightly wider string spacing at both ends of the guitar also makes fingerstyle playing and chordal accompaniment more enjoyable. With a traditional "cut-through" saddle there should be no doubt as to the inspiration for this fantastic instrument.

Finished off with a gorgeous satin finish, vintage sunburst top with dark Walnut stain. Collings has yet again provided us with a spectacular guitar!
