Collings City Limits Deluxe Sunburst, 2007

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

The Collings City Limits Deluxe, part of the CL line, draws from the proven combination of a Maple cap on a Mahogany body, providing warmth, clarity and sustain.

This Collings City Limits Deluxe was first shipped and sold in March of 2008, and as Collings assigns serial numbers at start of production – which can take three to six months per instrument – this guitar would have been started in late 2007. It’s in very good clean condition with minor wear.    It features a very nicely flamed bookmatched Maple top on a Mahogany slab body, a Mahogany neck with Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and an Ebony headplate.   The binding, pickup surrounds, truss rod cover , control and tuner knobs are all grained ivoroid.   The pickups are Lollar Imperials, which always sound great.    

Here is the builder on the Collings City Limits Deluxe:

“Crafted with the finest seasoned maple and Honduran mahogany, the Collings City Limits Deluxe 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. The CL Deluxe features ivoroid neck and peghead binding and our custom ivoroid “top hat” knobs and pickup rings. Sleekly contoured for comfort and style, we’ve brought new life to an American classic.”
