Collings has unveiled its new C100 line of parlor acoustic guitars. According to the company, the new series of models will offer the power and volume of a full-bodied acoustic in parlor proportions.
The guitars' near-16” lower bout and 4 3/4” body depth is behind the bigger sound, but the models' narrow waist and non-scalloped bracing design aim to deliver the balance and clarity of smaller-bodied acoustics.
The C100 line will feature three models: the C100, with mahogany back and sides, rope purfling and an unbound neck; the C100 Deluxe, with an East Indian rosewood back and sides and an ivoroid-bound fingerboard and peghead; and the C100 Deluxe SB, with a Sitka spruce top and sunburst finish.
Prices for the C100 models have not yet been made available, but if we had to take a guess, you'll probably have to dig deep into your piggy bank for these.
