Collings I-30 LC Walnut Aged Lacquer

Sold

Description

"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

Once again, Collings has nailed everything that makes the vintage ES-330's so great with this gorgeous Walnut colored I-30LC with Lollar P90s! These guitars are light as air (6lbs and under on average), perfectly balanced, and possess killer acoustic and plugged in tones. Want to sound like Grant Green? Use the neck pickup, roll back the tone knob a touch, done. Les Paul snarl and bite? Bridge pickup, crank your amp, smile. Done. You can access everything in-between those two extremes with ease thanks to the always beautiful sounding Lollar P90s. 

Like all Collings guitars, the build, fit-finish, setup, playability, and tones are perfect. The aging is also incredibly well done - light finish checking, perfectly yellowed binding, and light wear on the nickel parts.

In truth, we're not sure what else you could possibly want from a guitar of this style. Collings has gotten incredibly close to that vintage ES-330 magic - simply amazing! Priced with hardshell case.
