If there were any doubts as to what the fine folks at Collings are capable of, let that be put to rest here and now.
Why We Love This
This truly stunning Aged Olympic White City Limits shares some aesthetic lineage to the classic Gibson Les Paul Custom we’ve all heard in the hands of Peter Frampton, Steve Jones, The Edge, and Randy Rhoads. Collings even went so far as to spec this City Limits Deluxe with a flat back as opposed to their usual belly contour, but that’s about where the comparison stops. Collings has taken that design sense and transformed it into another unmistakably fantastic solidbody, and we’re thrilled with the results. We think you’ll agree.
Outfitted with Throbak ER MXV Humbuckers for that authentic PAF tone, lightly aged gold hardware throughout, double bound ivoroid purfling, and a custom parallelogram-inlaid headstock veneer, you’d be hard pressed to find a better LP-style than this beauty.
"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."
