Collings I 35 LC Guitar Candy Apple Red Finish with Walnut Stain on Back/Side/Neck Pre-Owned 2017 ID-11781


Collings I 35 LC Faded Cherry Finish

None of the pesky midrange honkiness that can be found with bridge humbuckers is present. The bridge pickup is certainly hotter and more aggressive, but maintains full-bodied presence without any harshness. One reviewer had this to say about the pickups, "As they're pushed, they react with a smooth compression without becoming excessively bright."

Collings collaborates with Jason Lollar for all their pickup designs. While the particular pickups they use are specially wound to Collings specifications, they are very near in design to the Lollar standard Imperial Humbucking models. Lollar manages to capture the airy top end, tight lows, balanced midrange, and complex overtones of the best original PAF pickups.

In reviews, they are consistently given high marks for their balanced frequency response. Unbalanced coils keep the bottom end tight for the intense richness the pickups provide, as overtones build after each note is played. Alnico 5 magnets are de-gaussed to specific levels, unique to the neck and bridge positions.

This beautiful I-35 LC suffered a minor ding in the top while in our shop. This late 2017 Collings is new, yet it is being sold as-is with no warranty. The minor ding in the top has been repaired (see photos), though does not meet our standards in offering it as a new instrument. Our loss is your gain.

Includes Hardshell Case.
