The I-35LC Vintage from Collings Guitars takes their uber-successful semi-hollow design and incorporates what many of us here at TME struggle to describe: feel, responsiveness and musicality.
Why We Love This
Everything about the I-35LC has been rethought with the introduction of the I-35LC Vintage, from the laminate formula used to construct the body, to the finish, to the capacitors and pickups: a looser, organic feel was the goal, and we'd say that nail's been hit on the head.
The I-35LC has a tangible liveliness about it, and its sound is breathier and warmer than its predecessor. If you're in the market for a semi-hollow that delivers vintage-inspired sound with unbeatable standards of playability and craftsmanship ~ look no further.
"Every day we try to make a better guitar, every day. You're trying to reach for more, trying to do better, not trying to do the same. A lot of companies are trying to do the same, and that's okay - that's their deal. We're trying to stretch that. Our goal is a little more."
