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
A classic, reimagined, this Collings I-35LC Vintage features a gorgeous aged tobacco sunburst.
The I-35LC has become a staple 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 ESG-102B pickups, this I-35LC delivers all that PAF richness, midrange, and punch, with great harmonic overtones one can expect in an excellent semi-hollow electric.
"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."
