This breathtakingly beautiful expertly crafted Collings I35LC has just arrived with us. We ordered this incredible instrument around a year ago and are delighted to have just received it. Every inch of this guitars build bursts with style and character, and offers players a truly outstanding upscale level of playability and tone. This is the laminated more popular LC version. Features include a sought after set of Lollar imperial Low Wind pickups and a responsive 24 7/8 scale neck with comfortable profile. Within the whole Collings family of guitars the I35LC is surely one of the stand out models and represents the very best in combining traditionally inspired classic design with ultimate modern day high performance playability.

This is what the guys at the Collings workshop have to say about the design and the benefits to this incredibly beautiful I35LC guitar - The I-35 LC is the result of a custom laminated construction technique that Bill Collings and his R&D team developed in pursuit of the best tonal qualities of vintage semi-hollow guitar design. When crafting instruments designed to be used electrically at higher volumes, the resonant qualities of a guitar need a high degree of focus to achieve some of the classic semi-hollow guitar tones. The I-35 LC is the first of a line of laminate instruments designed to respond acoustically in perfect harmony with their electronics. Custom crafted in house for each guitar, the Collings laminate line has provided another unique way for us to voice our instruments for superior response and tone. The I-35 LC features a custom laminate maple top, sides and back and an all mahogany neck. The I-35 LC is among our most articulate and versatile electric models.
