"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

This gorgeous City Limits is bringing some serious vintage vibes! The perfect amount of mineral streaking and flame in the maple top combined with a very tastefully aged "Brock Burst" finish creates an undeniable "love at first site / gotta have it" experience, no? 

The playability and set up are perfect - nice medium action that feels a little more taut and Tele-like than your average LP-style guitar, no doubt playing a role in the glorious tones this guitar produces. Throbak has really perfected vintage humbucker tones and these ER MXV's have beautiful, clear cleans coupled with sweet, punchy overdriven tones let you easily cover a lot of ground with this open-sounding guitar.

Condition: Excellent/no issues save for a very faint amount of fret wear. The setup is fantastic and all electronics work as they should. 

Looking for a perfected LP-style guitar? This City Limits will easily exceed your expectations. Priced with hardshell case.
