Collings has introduced an updated version of its I-35 semi-hollow guitar – the elegantly crafted, vintage-inspired I-35 LC Vintage.

After going through a number of prototypes, Collings has equipped the final model with a maple laminate top and body, Honduran maple neck and rosewood fretboard, and a maple center block.

Other appointments include a 24 7/8" scale length, tone-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece.

Available in Aged Blonde, Aged Tobacco Sunburst, Aged Faded Cherry or Aged Jet Black, the I-35 LC Vintage was created using a new soft-aging process, which oxidizes the chrome hardware and checks the lacquer finish, resulting in a worn-in vintage aesthetic.

In terms of tone, the I-35 LC Vintage featutes a pair of Custom Throbak pickups, which are controlled via two volume controls, two tone controls and a three-way pickup switch.

Said to offer a range of sounds from soft cleans to punchy bites, the pickups seek to complement the classic aesthetic and kit out the semi-hollow stunners with an equally vintage tonal repertoire.

On how the new I-35 LC Vintage compares with the incumbent I-35 models, Manager of Artist Relations Mark Althans said: "It's a brand new model that offers something completely different."
