Observations: This guitar is in excellent condition. The factory aging is beautiful, with realistic finish checking and light swirling and scuffing to simulate years of playing, but there are no dings or finish chips and there is virtually no fret wear. This guitar is lightweight, plays beautifully and sounds fantastic. A marvelous example of Collings' incredible workmanship.
More about the I-35 LC: The I-35 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 Collings to voice their instuments 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 Collings most articulate and versatile electric models.
