2014 Pre Owned Collings I 35 Deluxe Jet Black and Dual Lollar Low Wind Imperial Humbuckers

The semi-hollow electric transcends genres, from blues to rock to jazz the versatility of these instruments cannot be understated. While Collings is not the only builder producing semi-hollows, the craftsmanship in their I35s truly separate them from the rest. The quality is evident from the moment you get one of these guitars in your hands.

While the rest of the industry at large uses pressed plywood for their backs, and bent sides, Collings carves the back and sides from one single slab of Mahogany. This preserves the "look" of a semi-hollow bodied guitar while providing noticeable sonic differences to the player's ears. The top is carved from a mineral flamed piece of book matched maple. This not only looks more like the "original" late 50's and early 60's instruments, but more importantly, sounds like an older guitar.

The I35 Deluxe features an all solid wood construction which makes for a very rich, complex and responsive instrument! This instrument also comes with high end appointments including ivoroid fingerboard and peghead binding, ivoroid "top hat" knobs, and ivoroid pickup rings. These appointments in combination with the Jet Black finish gives this guitar a very clean and classic aesthetic.

In the world of boutique pickups there is no bigger name then Jason Lollar. Collings has collaborated with Lollar to design the low wind imperial humbuckers that this guitar features. These pickups produce a pleasing airy top end, tight lows, with a balanced midrange. These pickups have rich overtones much like the best of the original PAF pickups.
