Collings C10 Maple Custom Cut Sitka Spruce and Maple with Cutaway ID-7566


Collings C10 Maple Custom Cut Sitka Spruce and Maple with Cutaway

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 our 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 to the optional cutaway, which allows unrestricted access to the upper frets. With its unique shape and asymmetrical headstock's lines echoed in the curvilinear pickguard, C10 models offer a welcome alternative for those who find that most small acoustic guitars look too much alike.

The Collings C10 comes standard with a Sitka Spruce top. Sitka is ideal for players who find Adirondack Red Spruce too punchy, bright, and stiff - but do not want to sacrifice on clarity. Sitka Spruce is a versatile topwood that accentuates the warm round aspects of the guitar's tone. The top end is sweet and crisp; with a driving, focused midrange and low-end. It strums with the best of them, but has a neck that flatpicks beautifully across the board. There is a reason Colling's are revered for their C10's!

The custom Maple back and sides are absolutely gorgeous and sound phenomenal. Maple is especially warm in tone, quite different than you would expect a maple guitar to sound like from another builder. Collings always does exquisite things with their woods and this guitar fits the bill visually and sonically.

This guitar is perfect for players who like a blend of brightness, projection and warm overtones.
