Collings C-10 models

Hi member here. A few years ago I spotted a pre-owned C-10 in my LGS. It really caught my eye. :roll:

Had to have it. I was told that it was a special order and I have to admit I've never seen another one like it. Its all mahogany with a TV Yellow finish and lots of mother of toilet seat trim. I know its not for everyone but I like it.

One think I love about it is the neck carve. It really fits in my hand nicely.

Something I've noticed though, since I've had it. I really don't see much discussion about the C-10 models compared to other small body Collings. I'm sure that dreads are the most popular model but I see lots more discussion on OMs and 000s compared to C-10s. I wouldn't mind having a 000 but I love this neck...

My C-10 (Mahogany/German top) with a dark burst is the guitar I have owned the longest. It is a wonderful guitar, and I, too, love the neck shape. Keep on playin'!

That’s a beauty of a C-10! Collings has a history of making a few colored acoustics (and ukes). They’re not trying to sell them to everyone, so the rarity makes them pretty special.
