“Crafted with the finest seasoned maple and Honduran mahogany, the Collings City Limits is built for tone. Lightweight, resonant mahogany combined with 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.”
The presentation of this guitar is like new. The eye catching candy apple red finish is as perfect as it comes. Nickel and chrome adornments pair well with the grained ivoroid control knobs, neck binding and pickup rings. The guitar is set up ready to play with 0.25mm action at the first fret and a comfortable 1.75mm action at the 12th fret. The fine, even grains of the East Indian Rosewood Fretboard give a classic Gibson feel to this sophisticated instrument. Aside from one small indentation behind the treble side of the bridge from what appears to be a vibrato tailpiece installed at one stage, everything else is flawless.
Combining the best of the iconic guitars that have come before, this guitar has a perfect simplicity that will light a clear path to your creativity as a guitarist. Warm and harmonically rich with maple, rosewood and mahogany tonewoods, this guitar’s sound is enhanced by two warm and clear sounding ThroBak Humbuckers installed aftermarket - a lovely upgrade! This guitar begs to be played, as guitars this good only get better with age.
