Collings City Limits - Aged Tobacco Burst
Collings strikes again! This City Limits has a beautiful Aged Tobacco Burst finish with some perfect finish checking and light aging on the pickups and hardware. Not to mention THAT FLAME ON THE BODY! The body and neck are bound in a cream colored ivoroid and it is absolutely beautiful. It looks like a guitar that has been lovingly played for the last several years and has been broken in just right. The neck is incredibly comfortable and, as always, it came in the door from Collings with an incredible set up – this thing is ready to roll. It's those simple appointments and extreme attention to detail that set Collings apart and put them in a league of their own. We are also big fans of the Lollar Imperial pickups featured in this guitar, which are a recreation of the original PAF Humbuckers with modern upgrades and improvements including better balance across the frequency range and a hotter wound bridge pickup when compared to the typical vintage set. If you're looking for a great LP style guitar with effortless playability and master craftsmanship - look no further. Let us know if you have any questions!
