Collings' use of the "plain top" maple in this new I-35LC aims at delivering a more vintage-inspired aesthetic while keeping in line with their amazing build quality.
Why We Love This
It's hard to top the classics and this sunburst I-35LC perfectly encapsulates what we love about Collings and their take on the vintage semi-hollow we all know and love. This particular I-35LC trades in the premium figured Maple for a more traditional "plain top", which is the perfect nod to all of those late 50s and early 60s 'ES' guitars.
The I-35LC has become the go to guitar in the Collings electric lineup, taking some of its classic queues from the Gibson ES-335 and creating a refined, sleek, and refreshed semi-hollow electric that pushes forward a vintage-inspired sonic recipe with modern build quality and unrivaled fit and finish.
Loaded with Throbak SLE 101 MXV pickups, this I-35LC delivers all that smooth PAF tonality with balanced midrange and punchy low end; it's got all the great harmonic overtones one can expect in an excellent semi-hollow electric.
