Description

"Every day we try to make a better guitar, every day. You're trying to reach for more, trying to do better, not trying to do the same. A lot of companies are trying to do the same, and that's okay - that's their deal. We're trying to stretch that. Our goal is a little more." - Bill Collings

While tipping their hat to the legendary Fender designs, Collings masterfully melds their Gibson-leaning tendencies with more Fender-like elements on this 360 LT M model. Think Jazzmaster-meets-LP Special. The overall feel tends to land more in the Gibson camp - short scale, chunky neck carve - but the Mastery Trem, "blackguard" looks, and tones are far more "Fendery" thanks to a set of Lollar P90's w/alnico pole pieces. 

This 360 LT M is full of beautiful cleans, jangly indie-rock approved overdriven tones that can be as refined or raw as you want them to be. It really depends on what you're after - reverb drenched Jazzmaster cleans? Low-fi Black Keys fuzz? Jangly classic rock? It'll do all of this and more. It's a surprisingly versatile instrument and the Mastery Trem is incredibly fun (and stable - tuning is rock solid). 

Condition: Near mint save for one pinhead sized indentation on the top near the Mastery Trem (you have to really look for it), one small indentation near the input jack, and some light pick marks on the guard. 

A very cool guitar for players looking to bridge the gap between Gibson and Fender worlds. The result is 100% Collings - a very good thing indeed! Priced with hardshell case.
