Collings Eastside Jazz LC Deluxe
Featuring stylized components of Collings' highly coveted 16" archtops, the Eastside is the consummate jazz artist's guitar with more gain, less feedback, warm fat tones and classic esthetics - world renowned Collings quality, all at a more affordable price. Built with laminate Maple top and back and sides, this sleek thin-bodied lightweight archtop was born for jazz
The flared peghead adds just the right amount of class, back in Jet Black and ready to play all night long. When plugged in, the Eastside deluxe still retains a warm, jazz tone. You don't even have to roll off the tone control to achieve a perfect Grant Green tone. As it is a laminate top, the Eastside is more resistant to feedback at higher volumes. As with all Collings, the playability, set-up, fit and finish are all flawless. The comfortable "C" shaped neck is a joy to play, and chord solos, single note lines, and Wes style octaves leap out of it!
Compared with solid wood construction, the Eastside LC sends more focused information to the pickups. The Charlie Christian pickup gives you a deep rich tone with round low end that will sustain for days! Versatillity and construction quality seem to coincide with the Collings Building process. The Collings laminate guitars offer a differing sonic spectrum to that of their solid wood equivalent.
This Jet Black beauty features parrallelogram inlays, ebony knobs and black pickup rings!
