This Tiger Eye finished Collings City Limits Deluxe features a beautiful flamed maple top and lustrous satin finish. We all know that looks only matter when there's some substance under the surface, so, how's this thing sound and play? Let's start with playability - that's easy. Simply put, it's effortless thanks to a perfectly shaped "medium/fat C" neck carve and immaculate fretwork. Tonally? This CL Deluxe has a lively, punchy, and articulate voice that sustains for days (cue the Spinal Tap jokes). Pull up a clean tone on your amp, strike a big, open chord and get ready to smile. This guitar defies the stereotype that Les Paul style guitars only sound good with some gain - not so here. If your country chops are in order you can pull twangy bridge pickup tones all the way through warm, round, jazzy neck pickup tones...Overdriven tones are dripping with harmonics, clarity, and power. The combo of Collings craftsmanship and Throbak's pickup winding chops yields one hell of a fun guitar.
A masterfully executed instrument that's worthy of enjoying today and/or passing down through the family. Priced with hardshell case.
