Offered is yet another Collings I-35LC for your consideration, this one built earlier this year. You will see various iterations of the Collings I-35, I-30 and Soco models in our inventory quite often. We invest in these  models whenever we can for one simple reason - this is the best line of hollow and semi-hollow electric guitars currently being made.

Being an 'LC' model I-35 this instrument has a laminated Maple body, which many players prefer because it is said that wood laminations resists feedback a bit better than solid wood and has a more focused tone. This beauty is finished in Blonde nitrocellulose lacquer and has a total weight of just 6.8 pounds.  The neck is made of Mahogany. It has a 24-7/8" string scale, a medium/fat C-shape with depth measurements of .855" at the first fret and .975" at the twelfth fret. The Indian Rosewood fretboard has a 12" radius, a 1-11/16" nut, medium frets and ivoroid binding.  The electronics consist of Lollar low wind humbuckers, 500K pots, Jupiter caps and a 50's style wiring setups. The bridge is a Kluson ABR-1 and the tuners are Gotohs with ivoroid buttons. 

Play this guitar and you recognize that it is based on the ES formula, but has been built with a precision and consistency that Gibson has been unable to match. Like virtually all the guitars Collings builds, this I-35 feels like it was carved from a single piece of wood. The playability is worthy of a guitar costing far more. The tone is superb - please check out the brief sound sample provided. This guitar has a voice that can be as smooth as silk, or as gritty and thick as any LP out there.

This guitar has seen only limited play and is in near mint condition with no flaws of any significance, frets included.  A bit of oxidation on the pickup covers and some very light pick wear on the pickguard are about all to be found. It comes in the original Collings/Ameritage case with the original paperwork.

A new example will cost you $5,200 but this near mint 2019 guitar can be yours for $1,200 less. For many players, the Collings I-35 is a guitar that beats the Gibson ES series at it's own game.  Make this beauty yours today!
