Bill Collings is admittedly building some of the finest acoustic guitar that have ever been built. When he decided to take on the challenge of building electric guitars, at the onset, this may have seemed an easier task. After all, electric guitars have no bracing, no acoustic waves to study, and acoustic players are known to be a finicky bunch when compared to our electric brethren.
Well, 70 prototypes and a year later, he felt he had finally formulated the electric guitar he would want to build. In the process he conceptualized the iconic electric guitar in a new light, developing a new standard for fit, finish, innovation, and most importantly tone.
This 360 LT pairs the comfortable offset contours and set neck of our 360 model with a level top. This guitar features a bridge and tremolo system from Mastery, a maker of cutting edge hardware components for offset-style guitars.
This 360 LT Ash is equipped with two Jason Lollar P90 Alnico pickups set in a tortoise pickgaurd and a Sonic Blue Finish.
From Lollar : The P-90 everyone is talking about. Scatter wound pickup with de-gaussed Alnico 5 bar magnets. A fatter P-90 tone with smoother treble. Sounds like an old P-90 rather than a new pickup that still has some hard edges.
Great for fat clean tone or harder driving rock with more grind. Neck and bridge will be equal, or bridge slightly hotter when playing single notes. Sold separately, or available in matched 2 or 3 piece sets. RWRP sets for hum-canceling operation. Single conductor, braided shield lead wire.
With such superb tone, playability and aesthetics this Collings 360 LT is able to pull off an array of different tone. This is the perfect guitar to add to any players collection!!
Includes Hardshell Case.
