Product Description

Collings I-30 LC - Aged Tobacco Sunburst w/ Aged Hardware

As the fully-hollow, P-90-equipped brother to the I-35, the I-30 had a lot of expectations to live up to.  Let us be the first to say how incredible these guitars are, and they've exceeded all of our expectations! Being fully hollow makes this guitar extremely resonant and light weight.  You feel every not you put into it. It's a truly captivating instrument! Collings' attention to detail is out of this world - it's hard to find a more meticulously crafted and designed guitar.  The Lollar Dog Ear P90's are a perfect fit tonally, as they provide plenty of bite but can be warm and mellow. This one in particular has a gorgeous aged Tobacco Sunburst finish, and the dark stain on the back brings out the gorgeous flame of the maple.  Please let us know if you have any questions, this one won't last long!

From Collings:

The lightweight, "trestle" braced body of the I-30 LC has been refined through extensive R&D, and is the distillation of knowledge gleaned from our popular I-35 and Statesman LC series. The trestle brace design directly couples the neck and tail block, creating exceptional strength and acoustical energy transference, while also allowing for a lightness and responsiveness that is both a tactile and musical joy to experience. Playing the I-30 LC, you can easily feel the acoustic energy travel through thesymmetric arches and re-curves of the top and back. These plates have been custom laminated and voiced for a tonality that is acoustic guitar-like in its resonance and dynamic response, but focused and feedback resistant enough to be utilized in jazz, blues, rock n' roll and many other styles. Our new custom designed trapeze tailpiece provides just the right amount of "give" for a relaxed string feel and effortless playability. Lollar Dog Ear P90s are perfectly matched to the instrument's acoustic response and offer a wide palette of tones from rich jazzy warmth to 1960's British Invasion style chime. Drawing its inspiration from both classic electric designs and our own previous models, the I-30 LC is an exciting step forward and an intriguing new Collings sound.
