When is the last time you saw a Collings with this finish?! This brand new CL in Rootbeer with a sweet sounding pair of Throbak ER-MXV pickups just came into the shop, and it's quickly become a standout in the Collings electric stable.
To say this is a Les Paul style guitar really doesn't begin to sum it up. Sure, it's that recipe - mahogany body, maple top, humbuckers, short-scale - but this is a much more elegant and refined version of an LP-style guitar. It's simply in another league altogether.
Tonally, the Throbak ER-MXV's have great midrange but are always clear and open sounding. The bridge pickup almost has an ES-335 like bark and bite while the neck sounds woody, warm, and round. A great combo to be sure - fitting for a guitar like this. "Expanded" Les Paul tones to match the "expanded" visuals.
Players looking for the ultimate, spare-no-expense LP-style guitar would be wise to check this City Limits out - you won't be disappointed!
