Eastside LC DeluxeWith fully-hollow laminate construction, a single Lollar Charlie Christian pickup, and an archtop-style floating tailipiece and bridge, the Eastside LC archtop has been designed with vintage tone in mind for the professional jazz player. Now available with upscale appointments, the Eastside LC Deluxe features a bound neck and peghead along with our custom ebony "top-hat" knobs.
Laminate Recipe Tone Shaping
Through extensive R&D and critical listening, each Collings laminate electric guitar has been constructed with various woods, grain orientations and densities to have exceptional response and tonality custom suited to each LC model we offer.
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 for many other styles.
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.
Handmade Ebony Hardware
We hand make each our ebony compensated bridges, tailpieces, and pickguards to perfectly match the instrument.
Custom ebony knobs and are handmade in our shop and only available on a Collings Deluxe electric.
