Collings City Limits Deluxe Premium Acid Wash w/Throbaks

Sold

"Every day we try to make a better guitar, every day. You're trying to reach for more, trying to do better, not trying to do the same. A lot of companies are trying to do the same, and that's okay - that's their deal. We're trying to stretch that. Our goal is a little more." - Bill Collings

This "Acid Wash" City Limits is just staggeringly beautiful with tones and playability to match! The premium quilt top was hand-selected by TME on a recent trip to the Collings factory. Turned out pretty nice, no? 

Looks aside, the playability and set up are perfect - nice medium action that feels at once fast, yet also capable of taking a pounding when you want to crank the amp a little. The tones are glorious - beautiful, clear cleans coupled with sweet, Live at the Fillmore-esq overdriven tones. You can easily cover a lot of ground with this guitar.

An exceptionally cool City Limits that could easily end your search for the perfect set-neck / humbucker guitar! Priced with hardshell case.
