2012 Pre Owned Collings 360Koa Natural Finish with 2 Jason Lollar Firebird Mini Humbuckers
Bill Collings has been making some of the most highly regarded acoustic guitars in the world for quite some time. So when he decided to build electric guitars, musicians were chomping at the bit to see what would happen. The flawless construction, the incredible attention to detail, and the Collings quality are all here. Collings has redesigned a classic guitar with players in mind. The meticulous construction is nothing short of astonishing. All with an affordable pricetag. Check out the Specs on this Pre Owned Collings 360K.
This fantastic electric model from Collings features a carved figured koa top with some gorgeous figure. It is completed with a natural finish. The body shape resembles a Les Paul, but stretched in the lower bout. It also happens to be a bit thinner than a traditional Paul. Your shoulders and back will thank you for that at the end of the last set on a long night. The Mahogany back has an ergonomic angle cut into it. As a result it rests comfortably against your chest whether sitting or standing.
The neck joins at the 16th fret on the bass side. However, the redesign of the angled neck joint allows the treble side to join at the 19th fret. This makes for an unencumbered visit to the higher frets an effortless process.
The knobs are traditional "top hat" type, but in typical Collings detail, the knobs are recessed into the body. This gives it an even greater sense of class. Underneath those knobs is 50's style wiring leading to Jason Lollar Firebird mini humbuckers. From Collings, " The 50's wiring refers to the fact that we attach the tone circuit to the wiper, or output, of the volume pot instead of the input side, where the pickup comes in. This makes the tone circuit less sensitive, so it doesn't get muddy when the volume decreases. It helps maintain clarity by not bleeding off the highs as the volume decreases."
Unplugged this guitar is resonant and lively, but plugging it in takes it to another level. Often confused for a minibucker with no poles. The Firebird® Humbucker Pickups use a unique design with a sound that resembles a fat single-coil more than a full-size humbucker. This is an overall brighter pickup (compared to the Mini). With a bass response that stays tight and defined longer than a Mini. Less snarl than a Mini with more spank.
The guitar is in excellent + condition. There are only a few minor surface scratches. We were unable to capture these in photographs. It has very minor fretwear. Includes the original hardshell case with pruchase.
