Here is a brand new Collings 470 JL Julian Lage signature model, in a lightly aged antiqued blonde finish. The guitar is a true hollowbody with trestle block construction, with a thin nitrocellulose lacquer hand-rubbed to a gently worn patina (no dings or dents). Pickups are Ron Ellis Ellisonic, and a Bigsby vibrato completes the vintage vibe. Marvelous instrument.
Collings sez: “The success of the Collings OM1 JL combined with Julian Lage’s love of electric guitars meant a second Collings-Julian collaboration was inevitable. But following such a highly praised signature model with yet another meant leaving nothing on the table. From its organic beginnings, the process envisioned by both parties was something designed and built from the sound up. The Collings 470 JL is the result of years-long conversations, engineering, testing, tweaking, playing, and listening. And then doing it all over again until it was right. From first sketches through plugging in the final prototypes, every aspect of this model inside and out is the result of a unique approach, technique, and style – both from the builder’s and player’s point of view – culminating in a one-of-a-kind electric guitar experience. In collaboration with our friend Julian Lage, we proudly present the Collings 470 JL.”
