Collings 470 JL – Antique Blonde Top
Oh goodness – is this a cool axe or what?!
This amazing Collings 470 JL in Antique Blonde Top is soo-perb!
The success of the Collings OM1 JL combined with Julian Lage’s love of electric guitars meant a second Collings-Julian collaboration was inevitable. But following such a highly praised signature model with yet another meant leaving nothing on the table. From its organic beginnings, the process envisioned by both parties was something designed and built from the sound up.
The Collings 470 JL is the result of years-long conversations, engineering, testing, tweaking, playing, and listening. And then doing it all over again until it was right. From first sketches through plugging in the final prototypes, every aspect of this model inside and out is the result of a unique approach, technique, and style – both from the builder’s and player’s point of view – culminating in a one-of-a-kind electric guitar experience.
In collaboration with our friend Julian Lage, we proudly present the Collings 470 JL.
