CRAIG'S POV

Expanding on the deserved popularity of the I-35 LC, newly in the shop is a Collings I35 LC Deluxe. It features ivoroid fingerboard and peghead binding, and ivoroid "top hat" knobs and pickup rings. With a balanced and articulate tone due to its laminate construction, the I-35 LC Deluxe offers an exquisite appearance to match its incredible sound.

This I35 LC Deluxe beauty is a superb guitar that's hard to put down. As always with Collings, the fit and the finish are masterful. That classic semi-hollow mojo is all there. The Throbak SLE101Plus Humbuckers enhance the sonic palette by adding a rich, resonant mid-range and touch sensitivity.

An exquisite addition to Collings's popular line of semi-hollow guitars, this beautiful I35 LC  Deluxe in Ice Tea Sunburst has my highest praise.

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.
