Pre Owned 2001 Collings C10 Sitka Spruce and Mahogany Cowboy Limited Edition ID-8747
Pre Owned 2001 Collings C10 Sitka Spruce and Mahogany Cowboy Limited Edition
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. The smaller upper bout is gratifying and a true dream to play. It's this unique body size that allows the C10 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 the acoustic models Collings produces, the C10 is perhaps the easiest for electric guitarists to adapt to, thanks in part to the more rounded neck profile.
This custom C10 is a limited edition cowboy instruments produced. It features custom appointments including, a gorgeous cowboy stencil on the top complimented with ivoroid binding, rope purfling, and dark stain on the back and sides. Additionally, this guitar features a custom nut width of 1 3/4" for those who find the standard 1 11/16" a bit too narrow for their playing style.
This instrument also features a custom OM style "V"neck with a “Paddle” headstock! With the standard Collings Modified “V” neck profile; this may be the go to guitar for players looking to complement their Dreadnought arsenal with something a bit smaller, as the neck on a Dread would be exactly the same as on this C10.
The Collings C10 comes standard with a Sitka 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 back and sides are gorgeous set dark stained Mahogany. Mahogany is a classic, perfect all around tonewood and it possesses a very powerful, textured and responsive sound, with a beautiful flat EQ for recording.
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!
This Pre Owned 2001 Collings C10 Sitka Spruce and Mahogany Cowboy Limited Edition is in excellent + condition with only a few barely visible, surface scratches and dents. There is some finish sinking beneath the stencil which we have attempted to capture in the detailed photos, however the image captured is exaggerated by the lighting and it looks allot better in person. We have inspected the inside of the instrument and found no cracks. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
