Brazilian fingerboard!

This stellar example of a CL Deluxe is so spectacular in every way we just had to have it in the shop. It’s stunning of course, with a wonderful select Brazilian board. But beyond that, the sound, playability and light weight (7.8 lbs) make this one of the very best CL Deluxes weI’ve ever played. In fact, it’s one of the best LP style guitars we've experienced for quite some time.

CRAIG'S POV

I rarely turn my back on the opportunity to acquire a Collings CL Deluxe with a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. Since they’ve been discontinued by Collings, I’ve seen very few come to the market place. This stellar example of a CL Deluxe is so spectacular in every way I just had to have it in the shop. It’s stunning of course, with a wonderful select Brazilian board. But beyond that, the sound, playability and light weight (7.8 lbs) make this one of the very best CL Deluxes I’ve ever played. In fact, it’s one of the best LP style guitars I’ve had my hands on for quite some time. The neck carve is just perfect with just the right amount of fullness.

There never is just one thing that gives a great guitar the right mojo. It’s just the right amount of "this" and the right amount of "that" that makes a just the right recipe. If you are looking for a CL deluxe , don’t let this one pass you by. In my opinion, they don’t get better than this.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT COLLINGS GUITARS
Bill Collings moved from Ohio to Texas in the mid 1970’s. Spurred by a lack of interest in medical school, this move enabled him to combine lifelong interests in both guitars and tools into the challenge of stringed instrument building and repair. After a couple of years in Houston, several guitars and a few banjos later, he headed west to southern California. Making it only as far as Austin, where he shared shops with fellow luthiers Tom Ellis and Mike Stevens. From there, he set up his own small shop in a wooden "one car" garage. His reputation for outstanding quality and meticulous attention to detail quickly spread. In 1989, he rented a 1000 square foot space and hired two helpers. Fast forward to present day where Collings craftsmanship is respected by professional and amateur musicians alike…anyone on the quest for quality. Some of these include artists; Keith Richards, Lyle Lovett, Pete Townshend, Emmylou Harris, Andy Summers, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, Joni Mitchell, Don Felder, John Sebastian, Lou Reed, John Fogerty, Tim O'Brien, Pete Huttlinger, Kenny Smith, Brian May, Joan Baez, John Prine, Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap, and Steven Spielberg to name a few. You owe it to yourself to try one.
