These do not come up used often. Especially one that was personally inspected and signed by the late, great, truly missed Bill Collings.
 
This used Collings I-35 LC in Dark Cherry Sunburst SIgned by Bill Collings is one of the pinnacle hallmarks among the many hallmarks of this great builder. Beautifully light, beautifully balanced and beautifully finished – it is a treat for the eyes, the shoulder – and most certainly the ears.
 
Perfection in the semi-hollow world.
 
Check the specs below, and get it before it’s gone – we are certain we will never see it again.
 
The I-35 LC is the result of a custom laminated construction technique that Bill Collings and his R&D team developed in pursuit of the best tonal qualities of vintage semi-hollow guitar design. When crafting instruments designed to be used electrically at higher volumes, the resonant qualities of a guitar need a high degree of focus to achieve some of the classic semi-hollow guitar tones. The I-35 LC is the first of a line of laminate instruments designed to respond acoustically in perfect harmony with their electronics. Custom crafted in house for each guitar, the Collings laminate line has provided another unique way for us to voice our instruments for superior response and tone. The I-35 LC features a custom laminate maple top, sides and back and an all mahogany neck. The I-35 LC is among our most articulate and versatile electric models.
