Eastside LC


Eastside LCWith fully-hollow laminate construction, a single Lollar Charlie Christian pickup, and archtop style tailipiece/bridge, the Eastside LC has been designed with vintage tone in mind for the professional jazz player.

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.


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
