Collings C100 Custom

As the bigger, bolder cousin to their 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 adirondack bracing design provide exceptional balance and clarity typically found only in smaller-bodied instruments with added punch and volume level. 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.

This Guitar features a custom Baked Sitka Spruce top, paired with beautiful figured mahogany for the back & sides. When torrefied, Sitka Spruce becomes very open and responsive. It's noticeably warmer and more-open sounding, with the woodiness, snap and depth of a well played-in guitar. A joy to play, and a fingerpicker's..or flatpicker's dream guitar. Many people would compare a torrefied guitar to a vintage sounding instrument that has been played for decades; a vintage tone out of a brand new guitar!
