This Collings City Limits Deluxe is truly a sight to behold. The quilted maple of the top has excellent sumptuous figure to it and the sunburst is light, warm and perfectly graduated. All the trim from the binding to the knobs to the truss rod cover are all ivoroid, and the mahogany body has a nice, deep burgundy stain. All that wouldn’t mean a thing if the guitar didn’t sound as good as it does, but this CL Deluxe hits it out of the park. The two Lollar humbuckers put out all the lush, balanced tone you could ask for with plenty of airspace to float around in. If you’re looking for a great looking, great playing LP-style, this is pretty much perfection all around.
