Collings I-35LC Custom Sunburst w/Antiquity Mini Humbuckers



"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

Rubbing your eyes wondering if you're seeing mini-humbuckers and a trapeze tail piece on this gorgeous I-35LC? No need my friend. This is indeed a Riviera-inspired I-35LC with an incredible sounding set of Duncan Antiquity mini-humbuckers, a trapeze tailpiece, reflector knobs, and aged hardware but a gloss finish. Pretty amazing, right? It is, trust us. 

If you're new to mini-humbuckers you're in for a treat. It's like the best of all worlds pickup-wise - humbucker output, single coil clarity, P90-like growl when pushing an amp...(they break up beautifully, btw). Seymour Duncan makes these pickups to vintage spec which means they're a little smaller than modern mini-humbuckers. To accommodate the smaller size, Collings custom made a set of bakelite pickup surrounds to fit them - very cool! 

Everything else you know and love about a Collings I-35LC is here - flawless fit, finish, and playability. These guitars are simply a dream to play. 

While we see a lot of guitars and can be prone to saying one is our favorite over another...this is indeed one of our favorite I-35LC's to come though the shop lately. Why? You saw Andy's pics, yes? Priced with hardshell case.
