Collings Statesman LC Deluxe Tobacco Sunburst

$5,310.00

"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 stunning Tobacco Sunburst Collings Statesman LC Deluxe is the newest Statesman Deluxe model we've gotten and, of course, we simply love it! The Deluxe model adds grained ivoroid bindings, knobs, and pickup rings to an already amazing guitar. 

While giving a nod to Gretsch-style guitars (hollow-body construction, a Bigsby, and TV Jones Filter'Tron style pickups), the Gretsch similarities end quickly once you have this guitar in your hands. Borrowing the Collings SoCo body shape, this Statesman is an incredibly lightweight and playable instrument that responds to your every whim - responsive, fast, toneful. 

To us, the Statesman feels like the perfect middle ground between a Collings archtop and their SoCo model. You get the feel and midrange of a Collings archtop with the ability to handle higher volumes (and a wider range of styles / genres) of a SoCo. A great combo to be sure! Priced with hard case by Ameritage.
