"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
Been waiting for the ideal, vintage-inspired Collings I-35 to come along? This stunning, Aged Faded Cherry I-35LC is the one friends.
We've known that Collings is capable of making incredibly beautiful looking, sounding, and playing guitars for quite some time. To have them turn their attention to nailing the classic ES335 "recipe" visually - neck binding, dot inlays, pickguard, vintage looking 'burst - and then apply a very realistic aged lacquer finish...it doesn't get much better.
First impressions? Super resonant, lively, and responsive. The neck on this I-35 feels incredible. The setup is simply flawless. Once you pick this one up, it's very hard to put back down. The Throbak PG102 MXV pickups sound incredible and add an extra bite to the classic I-35 tone.
Just an exceptional guitar that nails the classic 335 vibe, feel, and tones! Priced with hardshell case.
