What did Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Alan Holdsworth - to name a few - have in common?. Yes, you got it. White guitars. This I35LC Deluxe in a white finish is a stunner! A textbook example of Collings's superb fit and finish from the impeccable inlay and grained binding work to the warm aged Olympic white finish.

CRAIG'S POV

CONDITION: preowned and near mint. No signs of playing wear.

There is something about white guitars. Something that stirs my innards, brightens my day and puts a smile on my face. White guitars bring back memories of my childhood friend Rick Rydell and I staring at a Beach Boy album cover adorned with white Fenders while at the same time trying to pick out the chords to Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba-Barbara Ann. Or maybe it was anticipating the next episode of the Monkees in the hope that Mike Nesmith would be playing his white 12 string Gretsch White Falcon. What did Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Alan Holdsworth - to name a few - have in common?. Yes, you got it. White guitars.

Given my fondness for the color, you can imagine my smile when I opened up the case to this preowned Collings I35 Deluxe. Why? Because I have never seen an I35LC Deluxe in a white finish and man, it is a stunner! A textbook example of Collings's superb fit and finish from the impeccable inlay and grained binding work to the warm aged Olympic white finish. Throw in the outstanding playability and monstrous tone - thank you ThroBak - and you have a one formidable and righteous semi-hollow guitar. I'm smiling!

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.
