About This Listing

Offered is yet another fabulous Collings I-35 Deluxe in Tobacco nitro; this one built in 2013. The I-35 is of course Collings' take on the venerable Gibson ES semi-hollow.

This specs of this 2013 guitar are virtually indentical to a 2014 year model we sold earlier in the week. It has a solid (not laminated) carved top and and a solid Mahogany back. The top on this guitar has been upgraded to premium quilt Maple (an option which is now a $1,000 upgrade). The neck is Collings medium/fat C-shape. The fretboard is nicely figured Madagascar Rosewood with the optional parallelogram inlays added. The bone nut has a width of 1-11/16", the fretboard radius is 12" and the guitar weighs just 7.25 pounds. The electronics include Lollar low-wind humbuckers with a traditional 50's style wiring setup (2 vol/2 tone/3 way). The bridge and tailpiece are nickel-plated TonePros.

As with everything Collings makes, the build quality, playability and tone of this guitar is amazing. While many builders make a similar semi-hollow electric, this is perhaps the best of all, regardless of price. It certainly has the tone you are looking for from a semi-hollow electric; fat and woody, perfect for blues, jazz, clean or driven. Please check out the brief 'Soundcloud' sample below. As for playability, Gibson can only dream of making a guitar that plays as smoothly as this I-35!

This guitar looks superb unless you get really up close and personal. It has a few tiny impressions on the top, back and neck which I have pictured. You cannot feel the neck impressions, which look like they were made by a capo. The frets remain in excellent condition. These flaws are very minor but this is not a guitar for those who are seeking a mint example and it is priced accordingly. That said, this is one great playing, sounding and looking guitar! Included is the original Collings/Ameritage case.

To order a new example of this instrument with the upgraded quilt top, now costs over $8K. This 2013 example can be yours for thousands $ less. Do yourself a huge favor and try a Collings I-35!​​ Easily one of the most desirable semi-hollow electrics on the market today.
