Sold Collings I-35 Deluxe Highly Flamed PRICE DROP FRIDAY


Silver Supporting Member
Like-new condition Collings I-35 Deluxe. Just look at that flame in the pics below! Any abnormalities in the photos are due to glare, not any imperfections in the guitar. Not to be confused with the I-35 LC Deluxe (which has a laminated top), this model has all solid-wood construction, including maple top. This is by far, the best guitar I have ever owned. I don't simply mean 'most expensive'. I mean best feeling, sounding, playing, you name it. Fit and finish is beyond anything out there. Bill Collings was a biomedical engineer before he went into luthiery full-time. His attention to detail is second to none. This model has a smaller lower bout (15") than the Gibson ES-335, making for more comfortable playing positions. Having said all of that, I have finally found out for sure that I am a Les Paul guy at heart. Guitar nuts like me will understand giving up a phenomenal instrument for the one your heart cries out for. If your heart cries out for a 335-type instrument, then look no further; you've found "the one".

$4850 NOW $4400 for TGP members; includes paypal and ground shipping to CONUS. NO TRADES, PLEASE.

Here is some additional information from the Collings website: The I35 Deluxe combines our most premium features with the rich and harmonically complex sound of all solid wood construction. As part of its trim package, the dark textures of the I35 Deluxe's rosewood fingerboard and ebony faceplate are highlighted by ivoroid fingerboard and peghead binding. Each Deluxe series guitar is also fitted with ivoroid "top hat" knobs and pickup rings that are hand made in house solely for this series of instruments. Uncompromising in every feature, the I35 Deluxe is built for the discerning electric guitarist.
