Collings City Limits Jazz Merlot Finish with Broken Glass Inlays ID-7506


Collings City Limits Jazz Merlot Finish with Broken Glass Inlays

Thin, light, and exquisite, the Collings City Limits Jazz commands attention. Built with a fully hollow one-piece mahogany body, carved European spruce top, and modern stylings, this sleek thin-bodied archtop is made for jazz.

Collings achieves unmatched tone and response out of this archtop with the use of innovative bracing patterns. The carved European Spruce top is cross braced on the inside, much like a flat-top, as opposed to bar bracing, which is traditional for archtops. Each brace must be carved to match the inside of the arch. Bill wanted a more dynamic flat-top response and he has certainly met his goal with the City Limits Jazz.

The pickup is a Jason Lollar hand-wired Johnny Smith style humbucker. The pickup is mounted to the pickguard and floats beautifully at the base of the fretboard. Discreet volume and tone controls are found on the bottom edge of the pickguard so that they don't detract from the ultra-clean lines of such a beautiful guitar. A custom merlot finish completes the package, revealing just enough of the incredible European Spruce grain patterns.
