This C10 has it all, including one of the best pickup systems available today. Although the classy black lacquer and ivoroid binding theme catches your attention it's nice to know that it sounds every bit as good as it looks. Although it's been played this custom Collings has only seen very careful handling, the surface wear is so light you need strong lighting and even stronger eyeglasses to find it. And while you're looking at this guitar carefully, be sure to enjoy the impeccable fit and finish and the attention to little stylistic details, such as the way the tuner buttons, pickguard, and strap pin in the neck heel all match the binding on every edge of both the neck and body. The lacquer has settled into the pores of the wood a bit, resulting in a nice patina. Original case is also super clean.
