Pre Owned 2012 Collings I 35 LC Laminate Construction Tobacco Sunburst

Since Collings moved into the electric arena in 2006, Bill has had an interest in the role that laminate woods play in the tone of classic semi-hollow electrics and jazz guitars, and it was only a matter of time before he delved into a new variation. After much research and experimentation, and a few dissected classic guitars later... they are ready to introduce this exciting new line of electric guitars. The Collings I-35 LC model is a laminate maple version of the standard I-35. This guitar includes appointments such as dot inlays, an unbound Indian rosewood fingerboard and ebony peghead, and amber knobs and rings.

Compared to the solid wood semi-hollow models, the laminate construction 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.

This Pre Owned 2012 Collings I 35 LC Laminate Construction Tobacco Sunburst is in excellent + condition with just a few very minor surface scratches, minor fretwear and origingal hardshell case.
