Like all Collings I-35 Deluxe models, this Tiger Eye finished beauty's playability and tones are exceptional. Take the best 335 you've played, mix in a bit of a Les Paul's punch and fatness, then kick every aspect of that guitar up a few notches and you'll start to get a sense of what these guitars are all about.
The build quality and design touches are just stunning. Extremely light for a 335 style guitar, this I-35 Deluxe is very resonant both acoustically and plugged in. You'd be hard pressed to find a guitar that's easier to play. The set-up and fretwork are perfect, which ultimately means this guitar has your back - anything you want to play, it's right there with you and doesn't fight you. Tonally these guitars capture all that we love about ES-335's, but with a little more punch, sustain, and less midrange mud.
This very gently used guitar looks almost new. BUT -- you'll notice a couple small dings upon close inspection (they're nearly impossible to see, but they're there). IF you're looking to skirt the wait line for an I-35 Deluxe and can handle a tiny amount of honest wear, grab this one while it's still available. Priced with its original Ameritage case.
