Collings City Limits Lemon Burst Aged Lacquer 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

Collings is nailing that old 'burst vibe with these aged Lemon Burst City Limits! Just stunning. 

Like all Collings instruments, the playability and set up (and build) are perfect. This CL sports a really nice medium action that feels at once fast, yet also capable of taking a pounding when you want to crank the amp a little.  An exceptionally cool City Limits that might just end your search for the perfect LP-style guitar! Priced with hardshell case.
