Founded in the late '70s by the late Bill Collings in Texas, Collings Guitars is the flagship of American manufacturing. While the brand now uses modern manufacturing processes, it makes no compromises: every element is carefully selected, and every detail is given special attention, so much so that the quality of the models produced systematically surpasses that of the most renowned Custom Shops.
This guitar is an original creation by Collings, inspired by the Les Paul. Of course, it has the characteristic structure of the Les Paul: mahogany set neck on a mahogany body with a maple top, rosewood fingerboard, two humbuckers. But the comparison stops there. It is not a Les Paul, nor an imitation, nor a "rewriting" of the myth. It is an experience in its own right.
The woods are sought after and beautiful: mahogany is from Honduras, and rosewood has a tight, dark grain, very beautiful. The mechanics are Gotoh, ultra-reliable, and elegant. The bridge is a Kluson, impeccable, and easy to adjust. All around the binding, the head, the buttons, and even the case in which it is delivered, you can see the team's precise and careful work. The pickups are medium output Lollars, ideal for going from jazz to the edge of metal.
It is rather light and a little more balanced than a Les Paul, both in standing and in sitting position. The neck, with a full C profile, is very easy to "wield". The fingerboard is silky smooth and frees the fingers when they slide on it. As for the sound, it's all there: it's a guitar that can accompany Julie London songs for brunch, rock grungy riffs in the afternoon, roar on hard-rock progressions in the evening, and bewitch the soul of the blues at midnight. Just lightly touching the pots (of the DiMarzio's) is enough to influence each pickups position's dynamics, warmth, and general rendering. And on top of that, it's beautiful.
