"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
Stunning 2016 I-35 Deluxe in Tiger Eye Sunburst just in!
The I-35 is easily one of the best semi-hollow body guitars being made today. Impeccable build quality, exceptional playability, and tones that will hang with any 335 we've come across vintage or new. These aren't simply reproductions though. With the I-35 Deluxe, Collings has taken this esteemed model to the next level, making refinements to improve playability and comfort (an I-35's body is about an 1" narrower than a Gibson ES-335). One area that's hard to miss is the upgrade in the visual department, as evidenced by this gorgeous Tiger Eye burst guitar!
While this I-35 Deluxe feel and sounds like a great semi-hollow should, outwardly it's been given a facelift: a highly quilted/carved maple top, grained ivoroid binding, pickup rings, and knobs, parallelogram inlays....Look, we love a great sunburst 335 like the next player, but it's hard to deny the beauty of this guitar!
Condition: Like new (the protective plastic covering is still on the tailpiece!).
Like the idea of melding the feel, tones, and playability of a great semi-hollow with appointments worthy of the finest archtop? This is your guitar. Priced with original hardshell case.
On consignment, no trades please.
