Collings I35 Tobacco Sunburst
Versatility, Power, and one of the most popular guitar shapes in modern history. The I-35 is a unique upgraded tribute to the heritage of the double cutaway semi-hollow electric guitar. This I-35's design pairs a mahogany back and sides with a maple center center block for a tonal response that is complex and quick, with an "airy" character. The I-35's top carve includes high arches and ample re-curve, allowing the best qualities of the solid wood to shine though in its amplified tone. An instrument that is at home in almost any genre, the Collings I-35 has quickly become one of our most popular electric models.
This I35 has been upgraded w/ ThroBak Custom ER MXV Humbuckers ensuring that these guitars roar like the Lengendary Gibsons of old! The 50's Gibson humbucker was the first successful humbucking pickup and is commonly referred to among collectors as the Patent Applied For pickup or PAF. Using similar tooling and wiring the Throbak MXV series uses vintage accurate reproduction to create pickups that offer the same vintage tones we know and love with a modern twist.
A common misconception of the Patent Applied For pickups was that these pickups were wound by hand. In fact, one of the most important tonal ingredients for the legendary Gibson PAF pickups was the vintage winding machines. Only using a small number of machines to wind the coils, each machine added it's own tonal signature to the PAF Pickups. ThroBak takes all the tonal possibilities that the winding machines are capable of and combine them to produce the ThroBak.
