    I like those Curt Mangans. I can't remember which I have on the I-35lc at this point, because I've tried a bunch on several guitars. Never tried the Thomastiks, personally, but hear nothing but praise. I think I have 11-50s, currently.

    Can't wait for your review and demo of the I-30lc!!!

    To me the neck pick up on the Imperials is very mellow with some chime, when played through may Head Strong, when I play it through my Swart it has a warm tone with a little growl. The bridge pickup retains the chime with a little snap one the Head Strong and on the Swart has a super cool Growl. I have a 50s thin line CS tele, a Nocaster CS, a Tom Anderson Start, a Penguin, a 57 Les Paul CS and a K-Line san Bernardino. The sound from my Collings is what i prefer the most and has become the bar by which my other guitars are measured.

    What about them?
    As mentioned I have them in both my I-35lc and Soco Spruce and really like them. I am a fulltime jazz player, they work great for jazz.

    Mark from Collings says that:

    Hey Gustavo,

    Either the ER Custom or the PG102 models would be great for Jazz! The PG's would have a slightly looser feel compared to the ER's which are tighter and more focused.

    The SLE-101 Plus set is very nice for Jazz playing, but another great set if you'd like your tone to be thicker and darker is the PG-102 set.

    It might be good for you to try the guitar as it is though because those SLE's are quite nice. They are our personal favorite set for the I35's.
