A sound so warm you'll want to cozy on up right next to it! The beautiful semi-hollow I-35 LC by Collings!
The Collings I-35 LC is one baaaad guitar, man - and we can't seem to get enough of them. Made in the vein of a similar Gibson model that's made an indellible stamp on guitar history, Collings takes the blueprint and constructs a finished product that meets the qualifications of even the most discerning player.
Don't be fooled by the laminate top construction, the I-35 LC is absolutely brimming with brilliant tone and the laminate top mitigates any unnecessary feedback common to its solid top kin. The Lollar Imperial pickups are a perfect compliment for this guitar. The airy treble frequencies and tight low-end captured by the pickups are a match made in heaven to the natural frequencies put off by the guitar. With a balanced mid-range and wonderful ability to capture overtones, this guitar will put you in harmonic bliss in an instant.
Playability that meets the standards of all players, a sound that won't disappoint and looks that'll blow you away, the I-35 is a top pick in every regard!
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.
