"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

This Collings I-35 Deluxe in "Dr. Pepper" Sunburst is a study in refined elegance. With just a touch more purple and brown than a standard Dark Cherry Sunurst, the "Dr. Pepper" Sunburst adds depth and vibrancy to an already beautiful finish. Add the gorgeous quilted maple top to the mix and you've got one hell of a beautiful guitar, no? 

Take the best 335 you've played and mix in a touch of Les Paul punch and midrange, thanks to the maple top / mahogany body combination, and you'll start to get a sense of what these guitars are all about tonally. The Throbak SLE101+ humbuckers deliver vintage-inspired semi-hollow tones with ease. The bridge pickup has great bite that's perfect for rock styles, and the neck pickup delivers open, fat tones that never get muddy - a rare thing with neck pickups (especially humbuckers). 

You'd be hard pressed to find a guitar that's easier to play. The set-up and fretwork are perfect, which ultimately means this guitar has your back - anything you want to play, it's right there with you and doesn't fight you.

Simply put, if you're looking for the best-of-the-best when it comes to an ES-335 style guitar - flawless build quality, finish work, set-up, tones, and looks, this is your guitar. Priced with hardshell case.
