CRAIG'S POV

When Bill Collings does something he does it right. He has surpassed my expectations with the new 360 LT

This guitar is being offered in 2015 as an adaptive shape to Collings 360. The top is level, not carved, which gives the guitar a more modern design yet when paired with the custom made Lollar Gold Foil pickups and Bigsby tailpiece this guitar becomes a vintage-like beast.The legendary gold foil pickups have a very open nuanced tone and voices perfectly with the light weight ash body used on this guitar. The stunning quartersawn maple neck adds to the guitar’s beauty while also complementing the tone of the ash body. Maple and ash , a marriage of woods that has worked for decades on classic guitars really works impressively here. The Collings 360 LT also has a new control layout that moves the volume control and 5-position switch up closer to your playing position which makes it a little easier to reach for volume  pickup-position changes on the fly. This is definitely a well thought out players guitar that can cover a lot of nuanced musical styles from grunge, pop ,rock, and country- you name it. It does all this with an immense amount of style and attitude with a design and playability that comes from the brilliant mind of Bill Collings. Well done, the 360 ST is a real winner!

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.
