C10-35As the newest addition to our acoustic line-up, the C10-35 brings a new voice to one of our favorite body sizes. This limited-production model features specially selected ultra-lightweight tonewoods, non-scalloped Adirondack bracing, a long cutthrough saddle, and other vintage-inspired features for an entirely new C10 experience. Like its big brother, the popular CJ-35 model, the C10-35 produces dry punchy tone with a snarly attack and incredibly even response in a compact and comfortable package.
From the starting point of the wood's density and rigidity, each acoustic guitar top is hand selected, evaluated, and carved to its own unique thickness; maximizing the tonal potential of each top.
The C10-35 features a non-scalloped bracing configuration with three tone bars and a short 24 7/8" scale length. This provides a focused dynamic range for exceptionally even note projection and a warm, full bodied note articulation.
A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.
By meticulously hand-sanding between coats, our nitrocellulose lacquer finishes measure between .005 and .007 inches in final thickness, maximizing acoustical response while providing excellent protection and aesthetics.
Premium Waverly open gear tuners offer exceptional tuning stability and smooth reliable operation.
The C10 features an ivoroid bound top and back with an African rosewood fingerboard and bridge and tigerstripe pickguard.
