Seasoned electric players looking to expand their palette, or acoustic players looking for their first electric, will find a lot to like with the I-30LC.
Why We Love This
Collings has simply nailed everything that makes the vintage ES-330s so great - light as air, perfectly balanced, killer acoustic tones 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.
You can access everything in-between those two extremes with ease. The Lollar P90s have a great midrange bite, balanced bass and treble, medium-ish output...slightly more open late 50s P90 tones through and through.
