Pre Owned 2014 Collings City Limits Deluxe Guitar Jet Black with Maple Top ID-10112


Pre Owned Collings City Limits Deluxe Jet Black with Maple Top 2014

This Pre Owned Collings CL 2014 is simply stunning! The ivoroid bindings and jet black finish accentuate the clean lines of this City Limits Deluxe. While it is quite a looker, the true beauty of this instrument reveals itself when it is plugged in and cranked up.

The City Limit Deluxe features a lightweight, resonant mahogany body with a hand-set mortise and tenon neck joint, giving the guitar great complexity and sustain. The guitar is balanced and incredibly comfortable in to play. It is the one that you will struggle to put down!

This guitar features Throbak humbuckers. The Legendary 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.

The SLE-101 Plus Limited has the same winder configuration as the SLE-101 Limited but with ThroBak custom cast unoriented A5 magnets and extra winds for more power and bite. The unoriented A5 has the crunch of A2 plus the added power of A5. Vintage spec. plain enamel magnet wire, Michigan hard maple wood spacer, vintage correct two conductor wire and threaded baseplate complete the picture. This provides a wonderful singing top end, a vibrant midrange, and a taut, precise low end. When played through one of Carr Amps, this guitar is a monster!

This guitar is excellent condition with no wear to mention. Includes original hard-shell case.
