Geez - do we love Pelham Blue...
This Collings City Limits Aged in Pelham Blue is a prime example of one of our favorite electric guitar models. As with all of Colling's work - this instrument is superb on every level. Fit, finish, looks, comfort, and tone!
Classic construction of Honduran mahogany with a premium flame maple top in that gorgeous pelham blue finish. It's familiar, yet masterfully and artisan built. The aging is tasteful, natural-looking, and adds an 'old friend comfort' to the aesthetic and feel. And the Throbak pickups are nothing short of astounding. Bite, bark, cream - everything you'd want in a pickup for this style axe.
