Collings I35 LC Laminate Construction Mermaid Blue
Bill Collings' and his shop in Austin, Texas has been building some of the finest acoustic guitars for decades and has recently turned his attention to electric guitars. The result has been nothing short of astonishing. He has reinvigorated the industry with his take on classic design. The Collings I-35 is their reinterpretation of the semi-hollow body, two-pickup guitar.
The guitar is built from a maple laminate construction. This not only looks more like the "original" late 50's and early 60's instruments, but more importantly, sounds like an older guitar.
The mahogany neck is superior quality wood and topped off with a Rosewood Fretboard with MOP Dot Inlays. The profile is a comfortable "C" shape with rounded edges, giving it a wonderful, broken in feel. Leaving no detail untouched, the bridge and tailpiece are a Kluson ABR-1, and the Gotoh tuners have grained-ivoroid buttons. You owe it to yourself to come in and plug this guitar into any of our Carr amplifiers and finally stop searching for the "tone", it has arrived!
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent shape with only 3 small dings on the body.
