360 ST Forging into new sonic territory for the Collings electric line, we are proud to announce the 360 ST. Featuring three Blackface pickups from Jason Lollar under custom contoured Bakelite covers, a Gotoh tremolo bridge and a choice of ash or alder body woods, the 360 ST explores the tonal potential of this classic configuration.
The 360 ST pairs the comfortable offset contours and set neck of our 360 model with a new vintage inspired soft V neck profile. The Gotoh tremolo bridge pivots on a two point fulcrum and a new Delrin nut material enables controlled, tuning-stable string bends. A new control layout brings the volume control and 5-position switch up within easy reach for volume swells and quick pickup-position changes. Its long 25.5" scale length creates a snappy string attack that when combined with the chiming musicality of single coils, makes for a beautifully dynamic and responsive instrument with ringing sustain.
The Collings 360 ST is available with either an ash or alder body that is acquired, acclimated, and hand selected for density and acoustical response by master luthiers here at our shop.
Lollar Blackface pickups feature a prominent midrange, glassy treble and a full bass that instantly evokes the best of classic Strat style tones.
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.
The 360 ST features a Gotoh Tremolo bridge with a two-point fulcrum and is fitted with a delrin nut for exceptional tuning stability.
We craft our pickguard and peghead materials in house, providing custom aesthetics like our etched pearloid peghead veneer, Highway 290 truss cover graphic and many more.
Each 360 can be finished in a variety of translucent, opaque, or metallic colors, and an ash body can be finished in our custom Doghair colors.
