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

If you're anything like us, we've always loved the look of the 70s walnut stained ES-335s, but never really loved the guitars that much. This new I-35 hits the sweet spot between an exceptionally well made semi-hollow guitar and killer, old-school looks.

First impressions? Super resonant, lively, and responsive. The neck on this I-35 feels incredible. The setup is simply flawless. Once you pick this one up, it's very hard to put back down. The tone of this guitar matches the look perfectly - smokey, warm, fat, vintage - thanks to a pair of Throbak Custom ER MVXs pickups. It really sounds like an older ES-335. 

Just an exceptional guitar in every way! Priced with hardshell case.
