"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
Not a fan of flame tops? Been searching around for an I-35LC with a plain top instead? This is the one you've been waiting on - a gorgeous plain top I-35LC in aged Tobacco Burst w/Throbaks.
Being so meticulous in their work, Collings has nailed what makes an ES-335 style guitar great - namely, the feel. The necks are exactly what you'd want in a guitar like this and remind us of what a vintage 335 feels like. Not too fat, not too skinny...while not overly descriptive we know, it just feels right in your hands. Think chunky C with perfectly shaped shoulders.
Tones? Beautiful. Clean and overdriven, this is as good as it gets for a semi-hollow. All the open, airy, biting, warm, fat tones you could ever want. Contradictory terms you say? Nope, semi-hollows are known for their versatility and can truly cover all that ground with ease thanks to a killer sounding set of Throbak SLE 101+ humbuckers.
We don't often see plain top I-35LC's - don't wait too long, this will likely go quick! Priced with hardshell case.
Interested? We may have another on the way.
