Collings Guitars is on a creative hot streak in 2021, as you can see by the looks of their new I-35 LC Vintage electric guitar. That’s only half the story, though, as the guitar sounds as good as it looks, especially in the hands of guitar great Audley Freed.

With its ’60’s inspired look and sound, it’s easy to see why the I-35 LC Vintage is one of the manufacturer’s most versatile and in-demand models. Three color options are available: Blonde, Faded Cherry and Tobacco Sunburst

According to Collings, 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.

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
