Here we have a brand new Collings I-35 LC with Aged Hardware and Faded Cherry Nitro Finish over beautifully flamed Maple top, back, and sides. Factory PLEKed and hand dressed frets make this guitar play like butter, as they say. This one checks all the boxes: looks, sound, playability, and quality through and through. If you can’t afford a ’64 ES-335 like Clapton’s, this Collings I-35 will do quite nicely in its stead, and for a lot less money.
Aged Nickel Collings (Gotoh) tuners with Ivoroid buttons. Comfortable 1 11/16 inch bone nut. Mahogany C-shape neck with 24.875 scale length. Neck depth of .865 inches at the first fret and one full inch at the twelfth fret. Bound Rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium frets and a 12 inch radius. A pair of luscious Lollar Low-Wind Imperial Humbuckers for that pure vintage tone. ABR-1 and Stop Tailpiece.
As with all Collings instruments, the fit and finish is of the highest standard. This I-35 LC is a lifetime instrument that will thrill even the most discriminating player.
