Collings City Limits
Collings has been making some of the most highly regarded acoustic guitars in the world for quite some time, so when they 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 Collings City Limits has a Premium Flame Maple top and is equipped with two ThroBak Custom ER MXV pickups. The Faded Iced Tea Finish & Aged Hardware are a sight to be seen!
The body is cleverly designed with ergonomic contouring at both sides of the waist. This commonly overlooked feature is quite brilliant, making already effortless playability even more comfortable. Weighing in at a 8 lb., the CL is easy to manage and perfectly balanced. Whether on the stage or in the studio, the CL feels right at home. The neck profile is a well rounded C shape that is unique to the Collings lineup.
The neck joint is angled toward the cutaway; following the body lines. This slight change fills your hand in a more natural way, easing the curse that other single cutaway guitars have. Playability is what we have come to expect from a Collings - effortless and untroubled up and down the fingerboard. Combine that with Collings reputation for intonation perfection - and you have a force to be reckoned with.
The unplugged acoustic qualities the CL exhibits are simply remarkable. It's the little considerations like this that will satisfy even the most discerning of vintage fans.
