Collings Eastside LC Guitar Tobacco Sunburst
Collings moved into the electric arena in 2006. Since then we have suspected Bill Collings has always had an interest in laminate woods. Specfically 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.
Featuring stylized components of their highly coveted 16" archtops, the Eastside is the consummate jazz artist's guitar. The perks of this guitar include more gain, less feedback, warm fat tones and classic aesthetics. This is world renowned Collings quality, all at a more affordable price. Built with laminate Maple top and back and sides, this sleek thin-bodied lightweight archtop is made for jazz. Introduced at this year's NAMM show in Anaheim. We are excited to see one of these grace our walls.
The flared peghead adds just the right amount of class. 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. 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, Collings to use higher output electronics. The Lollar Humbucker creates tone that is evenly balanced 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. Both offering different & unique tools for your toolbox!
