Collings C10 Deluxe Short Scale w/ Sitka Spruce & Indian Rosewood w/ Cutaway Pre-Owned 2013


Collings C10 Deluxe Short Scale

Based on guitars first introduced around the same time as the OM, the Collings C10 is a leaner alternative, with the narrow waist and small upper bout resulting in a precise, focused response. Of all the Collings acoustic models, the C10 is perhaps the easiest for electric guitarists to adapt to, thanks in part to the more rounded neck profile. The small oval neck heel is ideally suited w/ the custom cutaway, which allows unrestricted access to the upper frets. With its unique shape, the C10 models offer a welcome alternative for those who find that most small acoustic guitars look too much alike.

Appointed with the tried and true combination of Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood, this C10's focused punch is warm and inviting with strong overtones that can ring into each other, creating a lush and powerful sound! The C shape neck profile feels comfortable, making this C10 play like butter when matched with the custom short scale! If you're looking songwriter instrument or something easy to play around with on the couch then this C10 Deluxe is for you!

This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ only light scratches on the pickguard.
