Collings I 35 Deluxe
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.
While the rest of the industry at large uses pressed plywood for their backs, and bent sides, Collings carves the back and sides from one single slab of Mahogany. This preserves the "look" of a semi-hollow bodied guitar while providing noticeable sonic differences to the player's ears.
This guitar comes equipped with Lollar's P90 pickups. P-90 pickups are one of the most versatile single coil pickups made. Jason designed ours not only to sound great but has always built them with materials designed to not deteriorate or become brittle over time. We cut and build our bobbins here in the shop along with all of our other single coil pickups.
All of our P-90s are vintage inspired. They're also one of our most popular pickups — and for good reason; we focus on sound, consistency, and reliability.
The mahogany neck is superior quality wood and topped off with a Rosewood Fretboard with Mother of Pearl parallelogram 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 Kluson, and the Gotoh tuners have grained-ivoroid buttons.
This instrument is in Excellent + Condition with only some light surface scratches on the pickups.
