Statesman LC


Statesman LCInspired by the classic sounds pioneered by players such as Chet Atkins and Eddie Cochran, the fully-hollow Statesman LC 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 Construction

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.


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.


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” in final thickness, maximizing acoustic response while providing excellent protection and aesthetics.


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


With a fully bound body, mother of pearl dot inlays, and top hat knobs, appointments for an LC electric are available in a variety of colors and materials to match your chosen finish.

Full Body Finishes

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