Statesman LC Deluxe

Overview

Statesman LC DeluxeInspired by the classic sounds pioneered by players such as Chet Atkins and Eddie Cochran, the fully-hollow Statesman LC Deluxe captures the vibe and tones of this iconic era with a trestle-braced maple laminate body, Bigsby B3 vibrato and TV Jones Filtertron pickups.

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.

Electronics

With an Alnico magnet twice as large as a PAF style humbucker and tightly spaced low-wound bobbins, TV Jones Classic Filtertrons capture the authentic vintage twang and growl of 1950's and early 1960's Filtertrons.

Playability

A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.

Finish

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.

Hardware

Collings electrics feature Gotoh SG301 tuners and Tonepros tune-o-matic bridges and stop tailpieces.

Deluxe Appointments

Custom ivoroid knobs and pickup rings are handmade in our shop and only available on a Collings Deluxe electric.

Full Body Finishes

Being constructed of all laminate maple, each LC guitar can be finished with a variety of colors and full body sunbursts
