"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

The Dark Cherry Sunburst on our latest I-35LC has got to be one of the nicest looking bursts going, no? The depth of color is incredible and looks so good on this style of guitar (if we do say so ourselves). And DIG the tortoise binding!

We see a lot of I-35s at TME and some really capture the essence of a great, vintage blonde, cherry, or tobacco 335 and others like this Cherry Burst I-35 make you step back and realize, yet again, just how great these guitars can be. The build quality, playability, tones, and looks are simply perfect. 

We really love what Throbak humbuckers bring to this model. In short, they just sound...right. The perfect amount of output, midrange,'s all here. This is what a great 335-style guitar should sound like! 

Not really sure what else you could possibly want in a modern semi-hollow bodied electric - this is as good as it gets folks! Priced with hardshell case.
