2022 Collings City Limits Aged Jet Black, Mahogany Top w/ Case, Tags


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2022 Collings City Limits Aged in showroom-clean, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case, hangtags, and case candy. Collings guitars are handcrafted in Austin, TX, with premium components and hand-selected tonewoods. A unique factory aged example, this Collings features lacquer checking on the gloss Jet Black nitro lacquer finish, a seasoned Honduran mahogany body with a mahogany top (in line with ‘50s-era Les Paul Custom spec), a mahogany neck with a bound East Indian rosewood fretboard, and a pair of Lollar P-90 pickups.  

This Collings is one of the finest USA-made boutique guitars available today, with an eye towards history and exacting standards for tone and modern playability. All woods are acclimated and hand-selected for density and acoustic response, and the guitar is extremely lively and resonant with ergonomic contouring at both sides of the waist, and a neck joint that's angled toward the cutaway, following the body lines. This Collings is loaded with the original pair of Lollar P-90 pickups: the bridge pickup is Lollar’s standard P-90 design, delivering the glassy bark and midrange authority inherent to the classic design, and the neck pickup is a P-90 Staple. Based on the original ‘50s Staple pickup, this Lollar is exceedingly articulate and produces more output while maintaining a clear top end, delivering full, rich chords with great definition. Exceptionally lightweight for an LP-style instrument at only 7lbs 15oz, this Collings has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The high gloss Jet Black nitro lacquer finish is meticulously applied and hand-sanded between coats for an ideal thickness and natural acoustic response, and this finish has been gently aged by Collings, exhibiting extensive lacquer checking across the body. Beyond the factory aging, there’s sparingly little wear on the body, and the gloss finish on the neck profile is immaculate.

The original Ameritage hardshell case is included, along with the hangtags and case candy.
