....Crafted with the finest seasoned maple and Honduranmahogany, the CL is built for tone. Lightweight, resonant mahogany combinedwith a carefully hand-set mortise and tenon neck joint bring tonal complexity and sustain to the table in spades. Sleekly contoured for comfort and style, we've brought new life to an American classic.

..Es gibt nur noch wenige Gitarrenbauer, die tatsächlich Honduras Mahagonie (also das "klassische" Holz einer 59er Paula) verwenden. Wunderbare Gitarre - eben eine typische COLLINGS

ensures that each note can be accessed with ease and will ring with balanced sustain.

The SoCo Deluxe stands comfortably among the finest offerings available today for the uncompromising electric guitarist.

 

..die Korpusform der SoCo entspricht eher einer Single Cutaway als einer Double Cutaway. Und dieser konstruktive Unterschied ist ebenso hörbar wie bei einer Solid-Body Gitarre. Der Ton ist etwas "dichter" als bei dem Schwestermodell I-35. Auch hier der Hinweis: Das ist keine qualitative Aussage, sondern eine Frage der individulellen Vorliebe.  Die Decke der SoCo ist (wie auch die Decke der I35 - aus massivem Ahorn geschnitzt, gegenüber der der SoCo LC - also dem Schwestermodell mit Laminierter Decke.

The I-35 LC features a custom laminate maple top, sides and back and an all mahogany neck. The I-35 LC is among our most articulate and versatile electric models. 

Tolle Anprache, hohe Tonkultur - sowohl Clean als auch mit Gain. Hervorragende Bespielbarkeit, sehr stimmig - und in dieser Ausführung mit leicht gealterer Hardware und leicht gealtertem Lack..... Eine Gitarre, die man gar nicht mehr aus der Hand legen möchte.

...290 DC Some things are simply better in pairs. With a double-cutaway mahogany body and dual hand-wound P90 pickups from Jason Lollar, the 290DC offers unhindered access to the upper frets and a wide range of tonal possibilities. From pristine clean tones with rich harmonic complexity to hard-hitting classic rock sounds, there are few bases the 290 DC cannot cover. To further the guitar's vintage-inspired tone and aesthetic, we've made available a custom wraparound tailpiece (optional) that's been designed to deliver unsurpassed dynamic range and improved intonation up the neck.

 

Endlich ist auch die erste E-Gitarre von COLLINGS bei mir angkommen. Die Lieferzeiten für die elektrischen COLLINGS sind doppelt so lange wie für die akustischen - aber das Warten hat sich gelohnt - einfach perfekt diese 290....

Our goal for the I-30 LC was to take the concept of a double cutaway, fully-hollow, P90 equipped guitar and refine it to the extent that it offers something truly new for today's players. The result is one of the most acoustically responsive and versatile electric guitars we have ever offered.

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.

....With a 15" lower bout and hand-carved solid wood construction, the I-35 is a unique modern tribute to the heritage of the doubl cutaway semi-hollow electric guitar. The I-35's design pairs a mahogany back and sides with a maple center center block for a tonal response that is complex and quick, with an "airy" character.

The I-35's top carve includes high arches and ample re-curve, allowing the best qualities of the solid wood to shine though in its amplified tone. An instrument that is at home in almost any genre, the Collings I-35 has quickly become one of our most popular electric models.

 

..Die Decke der I35 ist somit aus massivem Ahorn geschnitzt. Gegenüber der I35 LC - also dem Schwestermodell mit laminierter Decke - ist der Ton etwas "dicker", er hat mehr Holz. Ich möchte dies in keinem Fall in der Katergorie "besser oder schlechter" verstanden wissen. Man muß die beiden Modelle unbedingt im Vergleich spielen - erst dann wird die individuelle Ausprägung deutlich. Um trotzdem einen Anhaltspunkt zu geben: Je Cleaner die Tonvorliebe ist, desto eher würde ich in Richunng "massive Decke" empfehlen, je mehr "dirtyness" im Ton gewünscht ist - dann die LC
