At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be an Authorized Dealer of Collings guitars. The Collings I-35 Deluxe is one of the builder’s most impressive offerings. With its long neck and double cutaway semi-hollow body, it’s obvious which iconic ’50s American instruments have influenced the design of the I-35 Deluxe, but Collings’ unique use of solid woods, paired with low-wind Jason Lollar Imperial humbuckers, push the time-tested template to a new level of tonal possibilities. This I-35 Deluxe (serial #16941) sports a gorgeous book-matched quilt Maple top that is beautifully accented by Collings’ complex Tiger Eye Sunburst. When you add a nicely-grained Rosewood fingerboard with minimalist dot inlays, grained ivoroid binding, grained ivoroid knobs, and grained ivoroid pickup trims, this is a guitar that captures your eye—and your attention—with ease. Those premium aesthetic features are the perfect visual representation of the harmonically rich and complex tone the solid-wood construction produces. The book-matched solid Mahogany body with its solid Maple top allow this I-35 Deluxe to have intense natural resonance. The result is precise response, impressive sustain, and woody character when plugged in. The low-wind Jason Lollar Imperial humbuckers allow the natural voice of the wood to color the tone through an amp, and they can comfortably push a good tube amp into smooth overdrive saturation, but they still clean up nicely via the custom taper CTS control pots. Overall, this I-35 Deluxe offers an unmistakable, stunning aesthetic and versatile, rich and warm tone to match. Please call (970) 728-9592 or e-mail for an in-hand description.
