Collings C10 DLX SB German Spruce Deep Body Sunburst ID - 5163
Collings C10 DLX SB German Spruce Deep Body 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 C10 features a German Spruce top, standing up to flatpicking, fingerpicks, and bare fingers alike, although it is particularly suited to fingerstyle players. This C-10 is, in our opinion, perfectly appointed. The body is bound in ivoroid, with a simple purfling. The sunburst is to die for and the tiger stripe pickguard compliments this finish perfectly. With its unique shape and asymmetrical headstock's lines echoed in the curvilinear pickguard, C10 models offer a welcome alternative for those looking for a smaller guitar that really separates itself from all the rest.
The Deluxe model, features a deeper body depth providing even further low end compared to the standard model.
