Collings C100 Deluxe
As the bigger, bolder cousin to Collings classic C10 model and the newest body shape in the Collings acoustic line up, the C100 combines parlor-style proportions with the power and volume of a large-bodied instrument. With a nearly 16” lower bout and 4 ¾” body depth, the C100 offers no shortage of solid, low-end response, yet the narrow waist and non-scalloped bracing design provides exceptional balance and clarity typically found only in smaller-bodied instruments. Whether you’re a flatpicker, fingerstyle player, or something in between, the C100 offers impressive versatility and just might be the ideal companion for singer-songwriters looking to fill the room with sound while still leaving space for vocals to shine through.
Sitka Spruce is the ideal tonewood for a good majority of players. It responds well to a variety of playing styles and produces rich, lush bass tones with smooth trebles right from the start.
A new favorite to the shop, this Collings C100 Deluxe is the perfect guitar for someone wanting a smaller body guitar that still puts out volume and classic thud into a sonic space. It is small and comfortable but puts out a sound similar to a slope dreadnought. Collings has really outdone themselves on this new addition to the line up.
