Collings C10A SB SS Acoustic Guitar, Honduran Mahogany & Adirondack Spruce


Why not spread the cost?


The Collings C10A SB SS is a leaner, short-scale alternative to its OM brethren, with a narrow waist and slimmed upper bout. These dimensions paired with its Adirondack Spruce top and Honduran Mahogany back and sides give this C10A a more precise and focused response. Each piece of wood is hand-selected and evaluated based on density and rigidity, then graduated to its unique thickness to maximize the tonal potential of each top. Once the woods are selected, the C10A is then meticulously hand-sanded between coats of nitrocellulose lacquer so the finish is ultimately between .005-.007”, maximizing acoustic response while still protecting the guitar and providing pleasing aesthetics. This results in a guitar that has pristine tonal balance, incredible sustain, effortless dynamics, rich harmonics, plenty of punch, and a surprising amount of volume for a smaller bodied guitar. For those looking for a compact acoustic that breaks the mold of common small-bodied guitars, as well as electric players who seek to dive into the world of acoustics, the Collings C10A SB SS is without a doubt a bold contender in the vast world of boutique acoustic guitars.
