Collings C10 Mh Mh Mahogany with Custom Vintage White Stain and Tortoise Peghead Veneer

Of all of Collings’ acoustic models, the Collings C10 is perhaps the easiest for electric guitarists to adapt to, thanks in part to the more rounded neck profile. The C10 model offers a welcome alternative for those looking for a smaller guitar that really separates itself from all the rest!

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 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.

This gorgeous C10 features a Mahogany top combined with Mahogany back and sides and a custom Vintage White Stain finish. This is an absolutely wonderful sounding instrument that excels at fingerstyle playing while also providing great projection and depth when strummed and flatpicked. The all-mahogany construction provides a clear, woody, dry and airy tone that is very balanced and smooth thanks to the masterful voicing.

Mahogany provides for more sustain, slower attack, as you would expect from a heavier top. Mahogany tops make for a friendly, sweet guitar that does not amplify mistakes. The Mahogany back and sides are perfect for players who find rosewood too boomy. Lead players will appreciate the enhanced note definition and clarity, especially through the midrange frequencies.

This all Mahogany Collings C-10 is perfectly appointed. The body, fretboard and peghead is bound with tortoise style bindings. It has a tortoise pickguard and custom maple and tortoise laminate peghead overlay. Finished off with a high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and simple black / white purfling. Additionally, the upgraded Nickel Waverly tuners with Ivoroid buttons top off a classy and elegant instrument.
