The Collings Eastside LC in blonde finish is a gorgeous guitar, with some very nice figure in the laminated maple that gives it a very three dimensional look. This guitar also comes equipped with Jason Lollar's Charlie Christian Pickup. Modeled after the very first modern electric guitar pickups offered by Gibson, it has a wide, acoustic response that is extremely dynamic and perfect for jazz. We love the Charlie Christian-Eastside combination, as it really brings out the tone of the body and the open characteristics of laminate-hollow design. Priced with hard case from Collings!
