Collings' gorgeous double-cut semi-hollow with laminate construction! ThroBack SLE101 Plus MVX pickups!
Collings took the 'ES' formula and bumped it up about 20 notches with the I-35! The subtly flamed laminate top prevents feedback and provides an authentic vintage tonal quality with modern reliability and even balance top to bottom. Throw on Collings' smooth and precise fretwork and a warm-sounding rosewood fretboard and I'm in love!
This particular Collings sports ThroBack SLE101 MVX pickups in the neck and bridge which are a little smoother and tighter sounding than the stock Lollar Imperials. But rest assured, each guitar sounds amazing! We've got a great round of Collings this time so don't miss your chance to snag one!
The I35 LC is the result of a custom laminated construction technique that Bill Collings and his R&D team developed in pursuit of the best tonal qualities of vintage semi-hollow guitar design. When crafting instruments designed to be used electrically at higher volumes, the resonant qualities of a guitar need a high degree of focus to achieve some of the classic semi-hollow guitar tones. The I35 LC is the first of a line of laminate instruments designed to respond acoustically in perfect harmony with their electronics. Custom crafted in house for each guitar, the Collings laminate line has provided another unique way for us to voice our instruments for superior response and tone. The I35 LC features a custom laminate maple top, sides and back and an all mahogany neck. The I35 LC is among our most articulate and versatile electric models.
