The I35 LC is the result of a custom laminated constructiontechnique that Bill Collings and his R&D team developed in pursuit of thebest tonal qualities of vintage semi-hollow guitar design. When craftinginstruments designed to be used electrically at higher volumes, theresonant qualities of a guitar need a high degree of focus to achieve some ofthe 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.
