360 LT M
360 LT MOur versatile 360 offset body shape has lent itself to several different adaptations since it's inception in 2009. In this latest incarnation, we are delighted to be working with our innovative friends at Mastery, makers of cutting edge hardware components for offset-style guitars. We've paired their remarkable offset bridge and vibrato with a solid ash (or alder) body and a maple neck to gain a further tonal foothold in the offset guitar sonic pallet.
While firmly grounded in the iconic sounds of the offset guitar world, we've integrated a set neck and short scale length into the formula, delivering a resonance and feel that is distinctly Collings. It comes as no surprise to us that our longtime partners-in-tone, Lollar Pickups, offers a pickup that perfectly compliments the response and range of the 360 LT M. Their custom alnico pole piece soapbar P90s provide the husky tone we had envisioned, but with the perfect amount of punch and clarity to enhance its vast stylistic abilities.
The Collings 360 LT is available with a choice of mahogany, ash, or alder for the body. Each tonewood is acquired, acclimated, and hand selected for density and acoustical response by master luthiers here at our shop.
Brimming with clarity, snap, and vibe, Lollar A5 Polepiece P90's master a classic F-style airy yet warm tone, with a bit more punch and roundness.
A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.
By meticulously hand-sanding between coats, our nitrocellulose lacquer finishes measure between .005 and .007 thousandths in final thickness, maximizing acoustical response while providing excellent protection.
Mastery have come to be regarded as the definitive manufacturer of high quality bridge and tremolo hardware for offset-style guitars. Crafted with extraordinary care, these components provide superior adjustability, tone, longevity, and tuning stability.
We craft our pickguard and peghead materials in house, providing custom aesthetics like our etched pearloid peghead veneer, Highway 290 truss cover graphic and many more.
Each 360 can be finished in a variety of translucent, opaque, or metallic colors, and an ash body can be finished in our custom Doghair colors.
