This weekend my friend Steve (Jato) brought over his Collings I-35 (amongst some other very cool gear) for me to try out. The build quality of this guitar was beyond anything I've ever experienced - I mean perfect. The burst was also very nicely done, warm hues, nice gradation. Lightweight, and very easy to play. To my ears, it had elements of a 335 and a Les Paul, maybe 65% 335, 35% Les Paul. Really gorgeous clean tones as well as overdrive tones. Both the bridge and neck pickup settings had this hollow thing going on, but not in any way thin. The real magic though was the tightness of the low end - I could play a full open G chord through my Glaswerks (which has lots of low end) and it stayed tight - almost as if there was a compressor on there keeping the lows tight/right - It didn't feel like there was a compressor, but seemed to have some of the nice qualities of a compressor without any of the bad ones. Outstanding guitar - really the nicest looking, playing, and sounding guitar I've ever come across. Here are some pics: here's a clip: http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6254374 I also have a clean clip that I need to upload.
