(USED) Just in on consignment, a killer example of the Collings C10, with a sunburst Sitka top, mahogany back and sides, and the deep body option for more volume and bass response.
The C10 is a great guitar by any measure, an ultra-comfortable L-00 size with a fair bit of attitude, and more snap and sparkle than the old Nick Lucas guitars that it’s based on. By switching this one to “deep body,” we’ve taken what is normally slightly compressed sounding body size (one reason why blues players love it so much) and added appreciable warmth to the sound. A deep body C10 is truly a “1 and done” guitar, once you play one you’ll wonder why anyone would need anything else.
Additional specs on this one include 1 3/4″ nut width with 2 1/4″ string spacing at the saddle, 25.5″ scale length, Waverly tuners and ivoroid body binding.
The guitar is in great condition, with a few light swirls on the upper bout and two lacquer dings on the treble side of the lower bout (see picture). Hardly any fret wear, it’s good to go. This guitar would be just under $5K new today, but you can snag this one for a good bit less!
