Ever wonder what it would be like to shoehorn a pair of humbuckers into an old ES-330? Sure, you'd have to slice into a perfectly good vintage guitar to complete the experiment, or find a factory special order for premium collector $$$, but who wants to do that? Here's where this off-the-beaten-path I-30 comes in...
Outfitted with a set of Throbak SLE 101 Plus MXV humbuckers and set into an aged Jet Black body, this Collings I-30LC shows like a classic Cadillac but drives like a jet engine is under the hood. The PAF style pickups inject a bigger, broader voice to the instrument, with a touch of added midrange and bite to complement the sweet airy hollowbody tones.
Want some semi-hollow flavor in a lightweight hollow body package? How about some acoustic qualities mixed with some PAF power? If so, then this is the guitar for you.
Price includes hardshell case.
