We're knocked out by this new model from Collings.  This guitar has a surprising amount of low end response with a powerful chunk and heft to the bass register.  If you closed your eyes you might think you were listening to a much bigger instrument.  The C100 may in fact be the perfect guitar for you if you've been looking for a dreadnought sound in a slightly smaller body.  It responds quickly and easily and is joy to play in a variety of styles, revealing itself to be quite a versatile design. The straight-bracing adds a surprisingly powerful and rich dimension to the sound.  This is a very compelling new model from Collings that may reveal itself to be a core model in the years ahead for those guitarists looking for a big sound in slightly smaller and more streamlined size.  Priced with TKL case.

Look for a video coming later this week!
