Pre Owned 2013 Collings Eastside LC Archtop Left-Handed Sunburst With Case
Serious guitarists that happen to play left-handed can rejoice: there's an ultra rare Collings Eastside LC archtop on the market now, ready for you.
With fully-hollow laminate construction, a single Lollar Charlie Christian pickup, and archtop style tailpiece/bridge, the Eastside LC has been designed with vintage tone in mind for the professional jazz player. With a fully bound body, mother of pearl dot inlays and top hat knobs, appointments for an LC are held in the highest regard. Each ebony compensated bridge, tailpiece and pickguard is handmade to perfectly match the instrument.
Built for a big, deep tone with round top end and long sustain, the humbucker route single blade Charlie Christian pickup is exceptional for jazz and versatile enough to cover many other styles. Of course, you won't be player thrash metal on this guitar, but other than that, this guitar covers a lot of bases.
The combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and silky feel. Collings builds to the highest standard, and this guitar shows it. The finish is a high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which looks amazing on this perfectly executed sunburst. It's a super thin finish, maximizing acoustic response while providing excellent protection and aesthetics.
This guitar is in excellent condition - it's obvious that the previous owner took great care of it, and treated it with the respect that it deserves! The original hardshell case is included (especially important for a uniquely shaped guitar like this). It's been setup to play perfectly by the techs in our shop.
This is definitely something you don't see very often. We all know that left-handed players are left out in the cold in the search for high end, high quality and highly unique guitars. Now there's one here, and we hope to put into a refined southpaw's home soon!
