Pre Owned 2003 Collings C10 Sitka Spruce and Mahogany Cowboy Limited Edition
This custom Collings C10 is number 14 of 23 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 2003 Collings C10 is in immaculate condition with only a few very light marks on the side which are barely visible to the naked eye. We believe that this guitar has rarely been played and spent the majority of its time in the case. It has no absolutely no fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
