Offered is this super Collings I-35LC  built at the end of 2016. For many players, the Collings I-35 is a guitar that beats the Gibson ES series at it's own game.

Being an 'LC' model I-35 this instrument has a laminated Maple body, which many players prefer because it is said that wood laminations resists feedback a bit better than solid wood and has a more focused tone. This beauty is finished in Blonde nitrocellulose lacquer and has a total weight of just under 7 pounds.  The neck is made of Mahogany. It has a 24-7/8" string scale, a medium/fat C-shape with depth measurements of .865" at the first fret and 1.00" at the twelfth fret. The Indian Rosewood fretboard has a 12" radius, a 1-11/16" nut, medium frets, ivoroid binding and upgraded MOP parallelogram inlays. The electronics consist of Lollar low wind humbuckers, 500K pots, Jupiter caps and a 50's style wiring setups. The bridge is a Kluson ABR-1 and the tuners are Gotohs with ivoroid buttons. 

Play this guitar and you recognize that it is based on the ES formula, but has been built with a precision and consistency that Gibson has been unable to match. Like virtually all the guitars Collings builds, this I-35 feels like it was carved from a single piece of wood. The playability is worthy of a guitar costing far more. The tone is superb - please check out the brief sound sample provided. This guitar has a voice that can be as smooth as silk, or as gritty and thick as any LP out there.

This guitar has seen only limited play and is in near mint condition with no flaws of any significance, frets included.  It comes in it's original Collings/Ameritage case, also in near new condition.

This is a very popular model and a new one with these options will set you back nearly $6K these days. Get this superb and near new example for $1,500 less. Most players who have tried an I-35 will tell you that this is one of the best semi-hollow electrics available at any price. Try one and see why!
