Austin, TX — January 22, 2021 — Collings Guitars has officially announced an exciting and versatile new addition to its most in-demand electric guitar series with the 60’s-inspired I-35 LC Vintage.
Designed to do more than simply look the part, the all-new Vintage takes advantage of years of R&D with fresh laminate and center block recipes that, combined with redesigned neck construction, reduce rigidity and provide a loose, organic feel and responsiveness not previously offered.
The I-35 LC Vintage’s standard aged finish and hardware offer a time-tested aesthetic while its custom ThroBak humbuckers and Luxe Bumblebee capacitors bring its open, acoustic musicality to life.
Key features include:
- Semi-hollow body with re-engineered maple laminate and center block recipes
- Redesigned neck construction
- Custom ThroBak ESG-102B humbuckers
- Aged Kluson ABR-1 bridge and stop tailpiece with all-aged hardware
- Aged gloss nitrocellulose finish in three color options: Blonde, Faded Cherry, or Tobacco Sunburst
The I-35 LC Vintage carries a list price of $6,500 and is available through authorized Collings retailers.
