Forging into new sonic territory for the Collings electric line, we are proud to announce the 360 ST. Featuring three Blackface pickups from Jason Lollar under custom contoured Bakelite covers, a Gotoh tremolo bridge and a choice of ash or alder body woods, the 360 ST explores the tonal potential of this classic configuration.
The 360 ST pairs the comfortable offset contours and set neck of our 360 model with a new vintage inspired soft V neck profile. The Gotoh tremolo bridge pivots on a two point fulcrum and a new Delrin nut material enables controlled, tuning-stable string bends. A new control layout brings the volume control and 5-position switch up within easy reach for volume swells and quick pickup-position changes. Its long 25.5" scale length creates a snappy string attack that when combined with the chiming musicality of single coils, makes for a beautifully dynamic and responsive instrument with ringing sustain.
