Preowned, 2017

Collings really nailed it with this one. If you are looking for a stellar jazz guitar this preowned 2017 Eastside Deluxe should be in the center of your radar. The condition is near mint with virtually no playing wear at all. It's fully hollow with an inviting acoustic sound, in spite of its reduced body depth. In addition, it is an ergonomic joy; you can play this guitar all night long without breaking a sweat or dealing with an aching shoulder.

CRAIG'S POV

Collings really nailed it with this one. If you are looking for a stellar jazz guitar this preowned 2017 Eastside Deluxe should be in the center of your radar. The condition is near mint with virtually no playing wear at all.

It's fully hollow with an inviting acoustic sound, in spite of its reduced body depth. In addition, it is an ergonomic joy; you can play this guitar all night long without breaking a sweat or dealing with an aching shoulder. In the looks department this is just a stunning guitar, finished in an aged jet black nitrocellulose lacquer. And what a sound! Plugged in it is dynamic yet smooth, full of character, in part because of the Lollar Charlie Christian pickup but also because of the well thought-out construction and laminate wood recipe. Of course, the fit and finish on this Deluxe is stellar as only Collings would have it and it's topped off with one of the nicest feeling '50s neck carves available.

This is a great guitar, one that could be destined to be a classic for the modern jazz or blues guitar player.

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.
