Collings "City Limits" DeLuxe 1
View Detail
New Collings "City Limits" DeLuxe Guitar 'Sold'

This is a beautiful guitar in every way. A perfect light sunburst really shows off the deeply-figured Maple top. The figured Maple is even better when held in your hands than the photos. Mahogany back and neck. Ebony fingerboard and peghead overlay. Appointed with all Ivoroid - truss-rod cover, pickup surrounds, knobs, switch tip, bindings, and even the buttons on the Sperzel tuners. Multiple Ivoroid bindings on top, single ivoroid on neck and peghead. Comes with 2 Lollar Humbucking p/u's, stop tailpiece and tune-a-matic bridge. Small dot inlays in fingerboard.
The tone is really very great...! This starts by Collings selecting their woods for very specific weight requirements, then by putting it together correctly and with great pickups. The resonance is great from end to end, even acoustically.
One close look at one of these guitars, or one time plugging one into an amp, and you'll understand why these guitars are already "sought-after" collectible instruments.
