I’ve been waiting for these guitars to start arriving, and it was worth it. Here’s a new Collings 360 LT M guitar in a special order sonic blue finish, alder body, curly maple neck, tortoise pickguard, Lollar P90s and the outstanding Mastery offset vibrato and bridge.
As Collings says:
“Our versatile 360 offset body shape has lent itself to several different adaptations since it’s inception in 2009. In this latest incarnation, we are delighted to be working with our innovative friends at Mastery, makers of cutting edge hardware components for offset-style guitars. We’ve paired their remarkable offset bridge and vibrato with a solid ash (or alder) body and a maple neck to gain a further tonal foothold in the offset guitar sonic pallet. While firmly grounded in the iconic sounds of the offset guitar world, we’ve integrated a set neck and short scale length into the formula, delivering a resonance and feel that is distinctly Collings. It comes as no surprise to us that our longtime partners-in-tone, Lollar Pickups, offers a pickup that perfectly compliments the response and range of the 360 LT M. Their custom alnico pole piece soapbar P90s provide the husky tone we had envisioned, but with the perfect amount of punch and clarity to enhance its vast stylistic abilities.” Serial # 36015421
