Collings C-100 Acoustic Guitar, Sitka Spruce & Honduran Mahogany with Sunburst Finish -


Sold Make an enquiry


The Collings C-100 is shaped similarly to the C-10 but bigger and a bit bolder. The guitar is the perfect combination of a parlor guitar, and a large-body instrument, offering both responsiveness and power. The C-100 was originally developed by the late Bill Collings, and around 20 were built in the 1990s, making them extremely rare. Collings announced they would be reissuing the guitar at NAMM 2018. 

This guitar is seriously impressive. The body size gives the C-100 a wholly unique tone, with resonance, volume, and clarity not easily found elsewhere. When strummed with a pick, the guitar has beautiful note-separation, making each chord wonderfully rich, without the overpowering bass sometimes found in a dreadnought. When played fingerstyle, the instrument has Collings’ signature clarity in the high end. This combination makes this one of the most versatile guitars made by the Austin company and achieves the tonal balance originally dreamed up by Bill decades ago. If you’re tired of the same old body styles, look no further.

This guitar features a gorgeous Sunburst finish and has been expertly demonstrated by Carl Miner in our video on this page.

TNAG Nashville's Kim Sherman on this C-100: "I like to think of this guitar as a larger C-10 because the shapes are similar, but with non-scalloped X-bracing. Crisp and full tone. Love it."
