This guitar is a one-off built for 2019 NAMM show, though Collings should perhaps consider making this one a regular model as the Bubinga back and sides perfectly showcase the strengths of their new C100 design. With a sound that falls somewhere between rosewood and mahogany, this guitar has excellent projection and bass response while still have a warm snappy sound characteristic of a much bigger instrument. The Bubinga set chosen for this guitar is rich with figure and really stands out next to their more standard mahogany and rosewood offerings. If you've been eyeing the new C100 model from Collings but haven't yet taken the plunge, this unique guitar is well worth your consideration.
