The I-30 LC from our friends at Collings Guitars are light as air, perfectly balanced, and possess killer acoustic and plugged in tones. Want to sound like Grant Green? Use the neck pickup, roll back the tone knob a touch, done. Les Paul snarl and bite? Bridge pickup, crank your amp, smile. Done. All with a little extra snarl, thanks to those Throbak P90 pickups.
Like all Collings guitars, the build, fit-finish, setup, playability, and tones are perfect. The aging is also incredibly well done - light finish checking, perfectly yellowed binding, and light wear on the nickel parts.
In truth, we're not sure what else you could possibly want from a guitar of this style. Collings has gotten incredibly close to that vintage ES-330 magic - simply amazing! Priced with hardshell case.
