CL DeluxeCrafted with the finest seasoned maple and Honduran mahogany, the CL Deluxe is built for tone. Lightweight, resonant mahogany combined with a carefully hand-set mortise and tenon neck joint bring tonal complexity and sustain to the table in spades. The CL Deluxe features ivoroid neck and peghead binding and our custom ivoroid "top hat" knobs and pickup rings. Sleekly contoured for comfort and style, we've brought new life to an American classic.
Each Collings Deluxe electric guitar is constructed of all solid woods that are acquired, acclimated, and hand selected for acoustical response by master luthiers here at our shop.
With an airy top end and a balanced midrange, Lollar Imperials employ unbalanced coils to create a tight bass response with the full bodied character and complex overtones of the best original PAF pickups.
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.
Collings Deluxe electrics feature Gotoh SG301 tuners and Tonepros tune-o-matic bridges and stop tailpieces.
Custom ivoroid knobs and pickup rings are handmade in our shop and only available on a Collings Deluxe electric.
Deluxe Series electrics can be ordered with quilted maple, mahogany, flamed koa, and other exotic top wood varieties for a look and tone custom tailored to your style.
