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

Our latest Collings City Limits proves that the good folks in Austin, TX are getting closer and closer perfecting the vibe of an old 'burst LP. The perfect amount of mineral streaking and flame in the maple top combined with a killer faded Iced Tea finish creates an undeniable "love at first site / gotta have it" experience  - just gorgeous! 

The playability and set up are perfect - nice medium action that feels at once fast, yet also capable of taking a pounding when you want to crank the amp a little. The tones are glorious. Throbak has really perfected vintage humbucker tones - beautiful, clear cleans coupled with sweet, punchy overdriven tones let you easily cover a lot of ground with this guitar. 

Looking for a perfected LP-style guitar? This City Limits will easily exceed your expectations. Priced with hardshell case.
