Stunning in looks and tone, this gently used 2020 Collings City Limits Deluxe features a Premium Quilted Maple top in Dr. Pepper finish with a set of Throbak ER-MXVs that deliver rich PAF style tone.
Why We Love This
Let's take a minute to appreciate the exceptional finish work that Collings has mastered, as evident in this stunning quilted maple top with aptly named Dr. Pepper finish. Think Tobacco Sunburst with a tweaked recipe that calls for a bit more chestnut brown with more shades of ambered red.
Plugging it in, you'll get why these CLs sometimes get called LP killers. The slightly longer scale adds just a touch more snap, which in turn helps deliver some great dynamic response. Combining a tighter feel with a pair of Throbak ER MXVs yields a classic PAF vibe with a tonal versatility that extends far beyond your traditional rock and blues corners of the world. With the right touch, you can easily cop warmer jazz tones into some brighter, edgier high end that'll make some telecasters shudder.
The Deluxe package elevates the aesthetic and really drives home that high quality level of detail we've come to expect from Collings. There's nothing quite like the sleek contrast of ivoroid binding, tuner buttons, and knobs against the exceptional maple, mahogany, and rosewood.
If you're looking for a single-cut solidbody that can truly deliver, this is the one for you.
Condition: Excellent. Very light play wear throughout. This particular CL presents very close to new.
