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

Oh my, what have we here?! An aged Pelham Blue I-35LC with full-body paint? And Throbaks? Go on...

We've long regarded the Collings I-35 as one of, if not the best, semi-hollow bodied guitar on the market. Simply put, everything about them is just..right. Perfect weight, perfect neck carve, flawless build quality, playability, and tones. 

Strummed acoustically they have a gorgeous, dry/papery midrange which is perfect for late night strumming when plugging in isn't an option. Plugged in, the Throbak SLE101+ humbuckers deliver classic ES-335 tones. Similar to a Les Paul, but more complex and open sounding. Depending on your technique and rig, you can pull Fender-like twang, classic Gibson overdriven tones, or warm, smokey Jazz tones out of these guitars. Semi-hollows have earned their reputation for being extremely versatile for a reason (looking at you, Larry Carlton!). 

Jazz to rock, you can truly cover it all...and look damned good doing it with this aged Pelham Blue stunner! Priced with hardshell case.
