Crafted with the finest seasoned maple and Honduran mahogany, the CL is built for tone. Lightweight, resonant mahogany combined with a carefully hand-set mortise and tenon neck joint bring tonal complexity and sustain to the table in spades. Sleekly contoured for comfort and style, Collings has brought new life to an American classic.
Each Collings CL is constructed of solid Honduran mahogany and eastern flamed maple that is acquired acclimated, and hand selected for density and acoustical response by Collings' master luthiers.
A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.
By meticulously hand-sanding between coats, Collings' nitrocellulose lacquer finishes measure between 0.005" and 0.007" in final thickness, maximizing acoustic response while providing excellent protection and aesthetics.
ThroBak ER Custom MXV P.A.F.
The ER-Custom name is a nod to well know Austin Texas luthier and repairman Ed Reynolds and his help with developing this special set of vintage PAF humbucker pickups. Ed was on a search for a set of humbucker pickups that met the needs of one of his well known clients. The result of this collaboration with Ed is a full sounding, punchy, mid dominant vintage PAF pickup repro with a pleasing high end. ER-Custom MXV pickups sound great in solid body LP style and semi-hollow ES-335 style guitars. The ER-Custom MXV set is a popular upgrade option for Collings electric guitars. ER-Custom humbucker pickups are wound on the ThroBak vintage Leesona-102 to complete the Maximum Vintage specs. Made in USA.
