Collings I-35LC Tobacco Burst


"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 has really perfected the semi-hollow recipe. For your consideration, this killer Tobacco burst I-35LC!

For starters, the smaller body feels more comfortable to most folks, the build quality is flawless, and the tones you can coax from these guitars are off-the-charts great. This guitar is really resonant, lively, and responsive played acoustically and the setup is simply flawless. Beautiful cleans, killer overdriven tones, classic biting, fat, airy semi-hollow tones are available in spades. ...there's a reason why some of the best players call upon the semi-hollow more than any other style of guitar. It really can do it all!

Again, think 335 perfected. There's really not much more to be said! Priced with hardshell case.
