Collings City Limits Jazz Thinline Archtop Merlot
Thin, light, and exquisite, the Collings City Limits Jazz commands attention. Built with a fully hollow Honduran mahogany body, carved European spruce top, and modern stylings, this sleek thin-bodied archtop is made for jazz and featured a cool Merlot finish.
Bill Collings has been making some of the most highly regarded acoustic guitars in the world for quite some time, so when he decided to build electric guitars, musicians were chomping at the bit to see what would happen. The flawless construction, the incredible attention to detail, and the Collings quality are all here. Collings has redesigned a classic guitar with players in mind and the now famous meticulous construction, and attention to detail is nothing short of astonishing. This custom City Limits with a Flamed Maple top, is the ultimate Les Paul and with Lollar Humbuckers, this guitar was born for rock and roll!
From Collings' website: "Crafted with the finest seasoned maple and Honduran mahogany, the CL is built for tone. Lightweight, resonant mahogany combined with a carefully hand-set mortise and tenon neck joint bring tonal complexity and sustain to the table in spades. Sleekly contoured for comfort and style, we've brought new life to an American classic." We, honestly, could not agree more. The CL is clearly influenced by classic American solidbodies of the past, and to say they hit their mark is an understatement.
