"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
Our latest I-35LC features a killer full body aged sunburst finish and the less typical, and equally killer, Throbak PG102 humbuckers!
Collings has really perfected the semi-hollow recipe. The smaller body feels more comfortable to most folks, the build quality is flawless, and the tones you can coax from these guitars are off-the-charts great.
This I-35LC is no exception - very resonant, lively, and responsive played acoustically and the setup is simply flawless. The Throbak PG102 (Peter Green inspired) humbuckers add a very cool midrange honk to their already great 50s style humbuckers. Pick attack is accentuated on both pickups, and the neck pickup has an almost Strat neck pickup hollow, bell-like tone. Think 50s PAF tones with a somewhat notched upper midrange accent. Please note, the magnets aren't actually flipped a la Peter Green's humbuckers which we actually like as you aren't boxed in/limited to just the Peter Green sound. You can get the basic vibe of his iconic sound, but you can also cover more traditional tones - very cool to be sure!
Just an exceptional guitar that nails the classic 335 vibe, feel, and slightly tweaked/expanded tones! Priced with hardshell case.
