(USED, MINT) Collings C10, Sitka, Walnut – $3,125

(USED, MINT) You know how we love the Collings C-10 model. It wears many hats and does everything well.

Sure enough, the walnut adds

(NEW) Collings C10-35, Sitka Top, Mahogany B/S, Natural – $4,185

(NEW) Bill Collings has done it again. It is now about 2 years since the introduction of the CJ-35, a limited-option model intended to optimize it for a more classic, historically faithful tone… something akin to a perfectly intonating, unusually articulate Gibby J35. That same philosophy has been applied to Collings’ newest acoustic offering, the C10-35. The body size is
