From Collings:

After several years of development and numerous prototype iterations, we are excited to introduce an I-35 as you’ve never experienced before — the new I-35 LC Vintage.

Drawing inspiration from the best instruments of the 1960s, our newest offering in the I-35 lineup provides an exceptionally loose and organic feel, achieved through a ground-up reworking of everything from its laminate and center block recipes to its neck construction.

Custom Throbak pickups and Bumblebee capacitors bring its open, acoustic response to life, expanding its versatility and proving that, although it looks every bit the part of a time-tested instrument, its appeal is more than just skin deep.
