COLLINGS C10 SMALL BODY NATURAL TOP
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 bout resulting in a precise, focused response. Of all our acoustic models, the C10 is perhaps the easiest for electric guitarists to adapt to, thanks in part to the more rounded 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. This model comes with the classic Spruce/Rosewood timber combination, Pre-war scalloped bracing, high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, ebony fingerboard with ebony straight-style bridge and mother of pearl dot fingerboard inlays, and Nickel schaller mini-tuners with 1.14 ratio. This fine instrument comes with a Collings deluxe hardshell case by TKL.

King Of The Hill. Without going to the Maton Custom Shop, this is as good as it gets. A solid AAA grade Sitka Spruce top paired with premium Indian Rosewood back and sides, a beautiful tonewood that offers up an incredibly resonant, deep warm bass whilst still projecting beautiful midrange and clear tops. Maton reserves this king of tone woods for the Messiah models and Custom Shop guitars. The Sitka Spruce top delivers clear, crisp highs with an even balanced tone that has excellent projection and volume. Scalloped internal bracing makes for a light weight responsive top with maximum projection. The traditional dreadnought body size is superb for recording, live performance or any demanding player. Loud, rich, and lush, the Messiah EM100J is a true acoustic legend.
The onboard AP5 Pro Pickup System delivers the ultimate live tone, by utilising both a piezo transducer under the bridge and a condenser microphone located inside the soundhole. You can isolate or blend both sources to deliver every nuance of your playing to a live audience. The Messiah comes complete with a Hiscox flight case.

The Tony Rice Signature Model represents over 30 years of collaboration between the world’s foremost flatpicking icon and SCGC’s founding luthier, Richard Hoover. Today’s model incorporates decades of refinement in response to players’ demands and the sophisticated evolution of the master’s technique. Never intended to be a copy of Mr. Rice’s iconic 1935 Martin D-28, the TR Model is voiced to showcase his stellar lead work with influences from Clarence White to John Coltrane. This guitar delivers exactly what the contemporary flatpicking artist needs: substantial treble and midrange for rapid single-line lead, clean note separation for definition and the traditional bass boom without the woofy bottom end of some of the venerable Pre-war dreadnoughts. Master grade Indian Rosewood and old Sitka Spruce give this instrument a professional presence at an attainable price.
This amazing guitar is only around six months old and in as new condition, representing a great saving. Comes in a deluxe Santa cruz case.
