The Collings C10-35 Sunburstguitar is one of our favorite models of the Collings line. This guitar combines features of the Collings CJ35 guitar with the Collings C10 guitar - and is one of our absolute favorite acoustic guitars at the shop. This Collings guitar features a select Torrefied Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, it has a loud, focused tone with a surprising amount of depth and warmth, and that distinct, vintage Depression Era L-00 vibe. Featuring pre-war non-scalloped Adirondack bracing and two tone bars, it also has an abbreviated tongue brace that slightly tightens up its overall sound, and a nice mid-range reminiscent of old Depression Era Gibson guitars. Incredibly versatile, it's especially great for old time tunes, folk tunes, and Robert Johnson-style country-blues, but fingerstyle players will love it, too. We really love it for all styles of playing and find it is an incredibly versatile guitar. It works great for bluegrass flatpicking, jazz, strummers, and more.
Here with a slightly shorter 24 7/8" scale length, and a nice, wide 1 3/4" nut width, it really makes for an excellent player that's neither too large nor too small, and just as perfect in the studio as on the couch. This has a mahogany neck with Collings' vintage inspired profile and 2 5/16" string spacing, combined with an African Rosewood fingerboard, 20 frets, and a 14"-26" compound radius. Loaded with high-end appointments, it has Ivoroid binding, rosette, and tuning pegs; a Tigerstripe pickguard; mother-of-pearl dot inlays; and a one-style Walnut backstrip. The Collings C10-35 SB is an exceptional guitar with plenty to offer. Includes hardshell case and a full setup.
