Collings City Limits Deluxe Black Satin 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

Check out our newest Collings City Limits Deluxe, finished in a stunning Black Satin finish! We can't stress enough how incredible looking this guitar is in person. Elegance-meets-menacing is the best way we can think to put it!

Everything that we love about a great City Limits Deluxe is here - punchy, articulate Les Paul tones, versatility, flawless build quality, and effortless playability are hallmarks of these guitars, this example being no exception. Equipped with Throbak ER-MXV humbuckers, this satin finished beauty brings all the vintage PAF tone you could hope for. We had a blast cranking it through a variety of amps - Fender styles through Vox / Marshall. It sounded glorious through them all! 

Simply a fantastic Collings City Limits with looks to spare! Priced with hardshell case.
