2021 Collings I-35 LC Vintage Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar Used
This Collings I-35 LC Vintage was made in 2021 in Austin, Texas. It’s in excellent, lightly played condition. The variation features a lightly aged Faded Cherry finish so it’s hard to say if all the minor scuffs are original but there is so little fret wear we’re going to say this guitar is pretty much in the same cosmetic as when it left the Collings workshop. This guitar is fitted with a pair of ThroBak ESG-102B humbuckers, which are custom wound for Collings. This is one of those guitars we don’t like to pick up because it sounds so good it’s hard to put down.
The Collings LC models more closely follow the design of the original Gibson semi-hollow body guitars of the late'50s/early'60s because of their laminated construction. But when you hear the term "laminated" it's easy to assume "oh, plywood, then" but Collings isn't using the lamination process to cut corners. Each LC model's top and back is laminated in-house at the Collings workshop in Austin, and the grain direction and thickness of the layers is the result of much research by the late Bill Collings. The laminated maple top, with a "combed" maple center block. This Collings version of the ES-335 has all the fit-and-finish detail that has made Collings famous. Includes the original hardshell case.
