6lbs 5oz version with intuitive 24 7/8" scale  extra long mortise and tenon neck construction. Combining flawless craftsmanship with Collings legendary quality and build, we have just received this stunning and highly creative black finish version Collings 470JL. Offering players a most responsive and articulate fully hollow w/ trestle block 6 string with some insanely lovely pickups and a no compromise approach. This may be the very best guitar on the planet right now, and its certainly one of the hottest and most in demand instruments we have ever come across.

The Collings 470 JL is the result of years-long conversations, engineering, testing, tweaking, playing, and listening. And then doing it all over again until it was right. From first sketches through plugging in the final prototypes, every aspect of this model inside and out is the result of a unique approach, technique, and style - both from the builder’s and player’s point of view - culminating in a one-of-a-kind electric guitar experience.

This is what the guys at Collings have to say about the design and concept behind this wonderful new model - The success of the Collings OM1 JL combined with Julian Lage’s love of electric guitars meant a second Collings-Julian collaboration was inevitable. But following such a highly praised signature model with yet another meant leaving nothing on the table. From its organic beginnings, the process envisioned by both parties was something designed and built from the sound up.
