Dark Cherry. Yum. Tasty. From a vine, and from a guitar. This Collings I-30 LC is just that - Tasty. 5 1/2 pounds of sugar and sass baby.
There is nothing like the punch, power and clarity of a good P90. And this Collings I-30 LC in Dark Cherry Sunburst takes that fact and runs with it by sporting some of the best P90's available in a masterfully built instrument.
What do you get when you take the concept of a double cutaway, fully-hollow, P90 equipped guitar and refine it through extensive R&D specifically for the modern player? The Collings I-30 LC, one of Collings’ most acoustically responsive and versatile electric guitars.
The perfectly balanced laminate construction creates excellent acoustic response and resistance to feedback while being very comfortable to play. The unique trestle bracing supports the top of this fully hollow guitar while adding tonal structure and definition. And, as applauded above - Collings perfectly matched Lollar Dog Ear P90s so you can get tones ranging from rich jazzy warmth to 1960's British Invasion style crunch and drive.
