"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

Our latest I-35 Deluxe from the good folks at Collings Guitars is not your "average" I-35 Deluxe. To our knowledge, this is the only one-piece flamed maple top I-35 Deluxe Collings has produced, and it's a stunner to be sure. As is that weren't enough, it also features tortoise binding w/purfling, and, custom tortoise knobs (which are outrageously cool). Combined with a beautiful Iced Tea Sunburst gloss finish, you've got one hell of a beautiful, unique, and tone-filled guitar. 

Beyond the gorgeous aesthetics on display, the build quality, tones, and playability are off the charts great per Colling's usual high standards. The effortless playability and range of tones available make this a go-to guitar for just about any style of music. Additionally, the smaller body of the I-35 make it a great choice for folks who love what a great ES-335 has to offer but, due to their size, have never found them comfortable.

Simply an outstanding guitar by any measure! Priced with hardshell case.
