The following comments about this model were made when Bill was still with us, but they speak to the accomplishments of his team as well, for it is the fruits of their labor guided by Bill's vision that we all are privileged to enjoy. G.P.
"This guitar is a peerless example of what can be achieved when an accomplished artisan reinterprets an iconic classic.
With an uncanny understanding of the tonal properties of wood, a sophisticated appreciation of the subtleties of playability, and a passion for excellence that makes for uncompromising build quality, Bill Collings consistently produces guitars that establish the standard for superior performance and aesthetic beauty. Prima facia evidence of his mastery is this I-35 LC Deluxe.
While Bill Collings certainly draws stylistic inspiration from the Gibson 335 for this guitar, it is in the substance of this instrument that his expression is made manifest. The select woods used for the laminated body have been carefully formed to produce an extraordinarily smooth and pure natural tone which provides a clean, solid platform for the amazingly responsive Lollar pickps. The beautiful fretwork and comfortable neck profile make for an especially supple feel which enhances the expressive playability of this instrument. And, the exquisite finish work is complimented by sumptuous details which include custom made ivoriod knobs and pickup brackets which match the tuning buttons and body binding. Fundamentally, this astonishing guitar is simply a wonderful tool for music making which happens to be mouthwateringly gorgeous - maybe it should come with a bib."
This guitar has custom options which include a '60s neck profile and parallelogram fingerboard inlays.
This guitar includes a deluxe Ameritage hardshell archtop case.
