Collings City Limits

To put it simply, guitars don't really get much nicer both looks, sound, and build quality-wise. To say a City Limits is a Les Paul style guitar really doesn't begin to sum it up. Sure, it's that recipe - a mahogany body, maple top, humbuckers, short-scale - but the CL is such an elegant and refined version of an LP-style guitar, they're in another league altogether.

City Limits Features

Premium Tonewoods

Each Collings CL is constructed of solid Honduran mahogany and eastern flamed maple that is acquired, acclimated, and hand selected for density and acoustical response by master luthiers at the Collings shop.


Whether loaded with P90s or humbuckers, Collings pairs their world-class City Limits with equally world-class pickups from Lollar, Throbak, or Ron Ellis.


A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.


By meticulously hand-sanding between coats, Collings' nitrocellulose lacquer finishes measure between .005" and .007" in final thickness, maximizing acoustic response while providing excellent protection and aesthetics.


Collings electrics feature Gotoh tuners, Kluson tune-o-matic bridges & stop tailpieces, or Mojoaxe Wraptail bridges.

Custom Trim

Collings crafts their pickguard, knobs, pickup surrounds, and peghead materials in house, providing custom aesthetics.
