Collings City Limits Deluxe Jet Black Custom Serial #1000

Pre-sold @ NAMM 2018 ($6575)


"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

Collings never pulls any punches with their milestone instruments. Case in point? This stunning City Limits Deluxe in celebration of the 1000th City Limits! Like most of the instruments that were on display at the 2018 NAMM show, it sold before it even reached our shop, but we just had to share. 

Upon first glance, you may overlook some of the atypical features on this unique build. Looking a little closer, the details start to reveal themselves: no body contours on the back of the guitar, back binding with purflings, double black/white top purfling, parallelogram inlays on both the fingerboard and peghead, ebony tuner buttons, and gold hardware. 

Added to the already stellar City Limits Deluxe, these appointments bring a decidedly Gibson Les Paul Custom vibe to the table. To be expected, the build, setup/playability, and tones were off the carts great.

The ultimate LP style guitar from our good friends at Collings? Absolutely, and what a way to celebrate #1000!
