Stunning I-35 LC Deluxe Custom in Pelham Blue metallic, lightly aged, with the superb Throbak MXV pickups. Super fine guitar. Note that the lighting tends to over-emphasize the finish checking on metallic colors.
Collings sez: The I-35 LC is the result of a custom laminated construction technique that Bill Collings and his R&D team developed in pursuit of the best tonal qualities of vintage semi-hollow guitar design. When crafting instruments designed to be used electrically at higher volumes, the resonant qualities of a guitar need a high degree of focus to achieve some of the classic semi-hollow guitar tones. The I-35 LC Deluxe features a custom laminate maple top, sides and back and an all mahogany neck with our deluxe ivoroid fingerboard and peghead binding and ivoroid “top hat” knobs and pickup rings. Comprised of both our in-house custom laminate recipe and our handmade ivoroid appointments, this guitar is truly a unique Collings creation. With a balanced and articulate tone due to its laminate construction, the I-35 LC Deluxe offers a strikingly elegant appearance to match its great sound
I’ve been lucky enough to play some very fine electric guitars, but in my mind there isn’t a finer semi-hollow guitar out there than the Collings I-35. An outstanding guitar, with a medium-fat C neck, 22 frets, 24 7/8 scale, bone nut, Tonepros bridge and tailpiece and a beautiful pelham blue metallic finish. They just don’t get any better. Lifetime warranty from Collings and a deluxe Ameritage hardshell case. Serial I35LC 201525
