Offered is this beautiul Collings I-30 LC completed in December, 2018. This fully hollow electric is one of the most sought-after guitars on the market right now. This late 2018 example remains in superb, near new condition.
The I-30 LC is fully hollow, uses laminate wood construction and has no center block. Instead, trestle bracing supports the top and the electronics and controls mounted to it. Light weight Lollar Dog Ear P90 pickups with phenolic covers are mounted to the top. The Mahogany neck is connected to the tail block via the internal trestle bracing. A Collings trapeze tailpiece is also attached to the guitar's tail block. In most other respects, this guitar is quite similar to the Collings I-35 LC, their incredibly popular semi-hollow model. It has a 24-7/8" string scale, a medium/chunky Mahogany neck with a 12" fingerboard radius and a 1-11/16" nut. It is finished in walnut nitrocellulose lacquer. This wonderful instrument has a total weight of just 5.4 pounds!
As with their I-35 models, this guitar feels and plays like it is carved from a single piece of wood, in the case of this I-30, a very light weight piece of wood. It is an incredibly resonant instrument, with terrific sustain and an output that is sufficient for unamplified playing. Plug it in and the P90's allow you get a clean tone that can be as smooth as silk. Crank it up for raunchy grit that is very LP like. Being a fully hollow instrument, feedback at high volumes is something to consider. Except for heavy metal perhaps, I suspect this would be an appropriate tool for most any music genre.
Built earlier this year, this guitar remains in near new conditon with just one tiny shirt button scratch on the back which is shown in the photos. The frets are like new. It comes in its original Collings/Ameritage case, also in mint/near mint condition.
These guitars are in high demand and cost $5.5K new. Get this near new 2018 example for a grand less. This is one of the finest new electric models to be released in quite some time. Grab it while you can!
