As semi-hollow electrics go, this is perhaps my favorite, a Collings I-35 Deluxe, this one built in 2017. You will see these on my website often, because they are so good and because customers consistently love them, as I do. 

The I-35 Deluxe is the top of the model line and has a solid (not laminated) carved top and with purfling. This one has a premium flamed Maple top and is finished in "Caramel" nitro lacquer. The neck is Collings medium/fat C-shape, measuring .845" at the first fret, increasing to .985" at the twelfth fret. The fretboard is made of Indian Rosewood, with parallelogram inlays and ivoroid binding. The bone nut has a width of 1-11/16", the fretboard radius is 12" and the guitar weighs just 7 pounds, 3 ounces. The electronics include Lollar Low Wind Imperial humbuckers with a traditional 50's style wiring setup (2 vol/2 tone/3 way). The bridge and tailpiece are nickel-plated Klusons.

I've repeated these superlatives frequently, but please bear with me.  The build quality, playability and tone of this guitar is superb. Despite all the alternatives, including several costing thousands of dollars more, this model is my personal preference when looking for a 335-style guitar. It feels like it was carved from a single piece of wood. It plays so much better than the guitar is was modeled after and sounds better too. Please check out the brief sound sample provided.

This fabulous instrument is in excellent condition, with only a few pin head-sized shirt button impressions the back of the guitar, the worst of which is pictured.  Most folks wouldn't even notice these, but I tend to be quite conservative about condition issues. Otherwise, this is like a new guitar and the frets are flawless. Included is the original Collings/Ameritage case, cleaning cloth and spec sheet.

A new example of this guitar will cost you well over $6K. This lovely 2017 example can be yours for a quite a bit less. Press the 'Buy Now' button and make this beautiful Collings yours!​
