This gorgeous Tobacco Burst City Limits loaded with Throbak ER-MXV's takes the classic Les Paul model to a much more refined place. It can cover so much ground sonically, it really just depends on your style and what you're asking of it.

Both Collings and Throbak have really expanded what you can expect from a humbucker, mahogany/maple bodied, short-scale guitar. No muddy neck humbucker tones to be found - just killer vintage bite on the bridge pickup and more neck pickup articulation & clarity are what you can expect from this CL. These guitars have definitely carved out their own feel and voice, but it's clear where its inspiration comes from. A great combo to be sure. 

As you can tell, we absolutely love this City Limits and think anyone who leans towards vintage looks but likes what modern guitars have to offer will too! Priced with hardshell case.
