Collings City Limits Deluxe Pelham Blue Aged w/ThroBaks



"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

Stop the presses. We wait a long time for these Collings CLs in their beautiful Pelham Blue finish; and this is far and away the most unique one we've ever had. The new Collings "Aged Lacquer" option gives this guitar a best-of-both worlds aesthetic ~ new, flawless Collings craftsmanship and the sheen of an instrument that's been on the road for a decade all in one package. Dual Throbak humbuckers give this guitar a sizzling, thunderous rock n' roll voice to match its looks, and the playability is textbook Collings (smooth as silk, with perfect responsiveness on every fret). Priced with hard case by Ameritage. A true knockout!
