Collings Archtop 16 Electric Guitar Italian Spruce with Sunburst ID-10606
Collings Archtop 16 Electric Guitar with Italian Spruce and Sunburst
Built in very limited numbers, the Collings 16" archtops are a rarity among modern archtop models in that they are designed to be played as acoustic guitars. Based on the earliest American f-hole archtops of the 1920s, they have a warm and balanced response that has converted many flattop players to the clarity, projection, and immediate response that an archtop instrument can provide.
The simple appointments of this sleek guitar, highlighted by the gracefully shaded finish, prove that less can indeed be more.
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!
This custom archtop features a sunburst, a 1 11/16" nut width, and Ivoroid binding.
