Just in! This gorgeous Collings C10 Walnut Custom goes above and beyond any expectation you could have of a parlor style guitar with it's fantastic combination of Spruce and Walnut, which provides a sultry and focused midrange that sings for fingerpickers. Collings' history of excellence with 6 strings goes back nearly 50 years with Bill Collings forming the company in Austin, TX and ever since pickers of all styles flock for their range of electric and acoustic guitars.

This C10 was a custom order for the walnut back and sides; it has been lovingly played, but kept in marvelous shape! The build quality is unparalleled with a perfect neck angle that suits low action all the way to the 14th fret, and a range of available neck relief for a rich, booming sustain. Now, there is not as much bass information coming out of this guitar when compared to a rosewood job, but it keeps things plenty tidy going into a microphone- so you get the sound just right at the source! The soft V mahogany neck is cozy and inviting for long sessions, giving support to the palm and just the right amount of shoulder for players that like going thumb-over.

Not many of these models running around with the walnut complement, so consider this your opportunity! You could have this in the studio next week- and you'll be going in plenty inspired.
