C100 DeluxeAs the bigger, bolder cousin to our classic C10 model and the newest body shape in our acoustic line up, the C100 combines parlor-style proportions with the power and volume of a large-bodied instrument. With a nearly 16” lower bout and 4 ¾” body depth, the C100 offers no shortage of solid, low-end response, yet the narrow waist and non-scalloped bracing design provide exceptional balance and clarity typically found only in smaller-bodied instruments. Whether you’re a flatpicker, fingerstyle player, or something in between, the C100 offers impressive versatility and just might be the ideal companion for singer-songwriters looking to fill the room with sound while still leaving space for vocals to shine through.
From the starting point of the wood's density and rigidity, each acoustic guitar top is hand selected, evaluated, and graduated to its own unique thickness; maximizing the tonal potential of each top.
With a nearly 16” lower bout, the C100 offers solid and punchy low end response with plenty of headroom to dig in for more aggressive playing styles.
Built for Versatility
With its parlor shaped proportions, the C100 combines the balance and clarity of a smaller bodied instrument without sacrificing power and volume.
An ebony belly-style bridge offers enough surface area to support medium gauge strings, which deliver added tension and headroom to drive the C100's large body size.
The C100 features an asymmetrical C-shaped neck profile that transitions to a subtle V shape as you move up the neck.
A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.
Premium Waverly open-gear tuners offer exceptional tuning stability and smooth reliable operation with a vintage aesthetic.
