It is undeniable that the good folks at Collings Guitars spray some of the nicest sunburst finishes in the industry. The hand voiced top of this new Collings C10-35 guitar proudly sports a classic sunburst reminiscent of the great shade top guitars of the 1930s.
Tonally the instrument is surprisingly rich and sustaining for such a small package. Perhaps this is due to the incredibly light tonewoods used for the construction process.
This guitar also includes the Collings Limited Lifetime Warranty and a wonderful Collings Traditional Series Hardshell Case.
