Based on guitars first introduced around the same time as the OM, the Collings C10 is a

leaner alternative, with the narrow waist and small upper boutresulting in a precise, focused response. Of all our acoustic models, the C10 isperhaps the easiest for electric guitarists to adapt to, thanks in part to the morerounded neck profile. The small oval neck heel is ideally suited to the optional cutaway, which allows unrestricted access to the upper frets. With its unique shape and asymmetrical headstock's lines echoed in the curvilinear pickguard, C10 models offer a welcome alternative for those who find that most small acoustic guitars look too much alike.
