Collings Custom Eastside Deluxe LC Maple Dark Cherry Sunburst
Since Collings moved into the electric arena in 2006, we suspect Bill Collings has always had an interest in the role that laminate woods play in the tone of classic semi-hollow electrics and jazz guitars, vs. their solid wood brethren. It was only a matter of time before he delved into a new variation. Thin, light, and simply exquisite, the Collings Eastside LC commands attention.
We are proud to feature the Collings Eastside LC Deluxe which features custom appointments not found on any standard Eastside LC. To start with, this guitar has been finished with a gorgeous Drak Chery Sunburst finish which is further accentuated by custom bound s-holes, fretboard and headstock, or much more reminiscent of the fully carved AT 17 from our friends at Collings.
To finish off this fantastic custom package, this instrument has been equipped with handmade ebony control knobs in true Collings attention detail style. This perfectly compliments the addition of a bound pickguard, which varies from the norm of the non-bound pickguard of the Eastside. Of course, the standard appointments such as the flared peghead, Nickel Gotoh SG301 tuners w/ vintage-style buttons 1:18 ratio and custom Parallelogram fingerboard inlays add just the right amount of class to this one-of-a-kind guitar.
The flared peghead adds just the right amount of class, while the gorgeous sunburst top compliments the Flamed maple top perfectly. 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, this instrument features a Single Lollar Charlie Christian pickup which creates tone that is evenly balanced across the frequencies, with the smooth response that many players look for in arched top electric guitars. The Collings laminate guitars offer a differing sonic spectrum to that of their solid wood equivalent. They should be viewed as two different styles of guitars, offering different & unique tools for your toolbox.
This custom Eastside also features a maple neck as opposed to Mahogany.
This Collings Custom Eastside Deluxe LC Dark Cherry Sunburst Pre-Owned 2013 is in Excellent + Condition with only 2 very light surface scratches on the back which were to small to pick up in the photos.
Includes Hardshell Case.
