Collings C10 E Engelmann and Mahogany Short Scale with Custom Sunburst

While you won't read it on Collings' website, the C-10 is very similar to the Gibson L-00 of old. It is built with a similar narrow waist and small upper bout; resulting in a precise, focused response. The smaller upper bout is gratifying and a true dream to play. It's this unique body size that allows the Collings C-10 to project a more focused mid-range then other smaller bodied guitars. This mid-range is combined with a crisp low-end and rounded, mellow trebles. Of all our acoustic models, the C10 is perhaps the easiest for electric guitarists to adapt to, thanks in part to the more rounded neck profile.

This Custom C10 features a custom Engelmann Spruce top complimented by Mahogany back and sides. Engelmann Spruce is a perfect topwood for many playing styles, in that it is stiff enough to flatpick while soft enough for fingerstyle players as well. The highs are also crystal clear on a Collings, since only the highest grade Engelmann Spruce is chosen for their instruments. You really can't go wrong with this model!

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. We have chosen to add the deep body(4 5/8) option to this one which may very well be the secret to this model. The increased size brings an added level of projection, power, strong bass presence, and rounded trebles to compliment the Adirondack top perfectly. The response to fingerpicking is just incredible!
