Collings I 35 LC Laminate Construction with Lollar Humbuckers and Faded Cherry Finish ID-5922
Collings I 35 LC Faded Cherry Finish
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 LC is Collings' reinterpretion of the semi-hollow body, two-pickup guitar. This I-35 LC features Collings' gorgeous "Faded Cherry" finish.
Compared to the solid wood semi-hollow models, the laminate construction the Collings I-35 sends more controlled information to the pickups, allowing Collings to use higher output electronics. These guitars feature the standard Lollar Imperials, as opposed to the low-wind Imperials used in the other Collings models. This creates tone that is evenly balanced with the smooth response that many players look for in arched top electric guitars. We wouldn't describe the tone of the laminate guitars as being better or worse than the solid equivalent. Instead, they should be viewed as two different guitars with two different sets of tonal characteristics.
Collings makes guitars with such superb tone and aesthetics. The craftmanship is top notch and comes out in the tone, playability, and feel of their great instrument. This guitar is truly a great one to add to any players collection.
