The I-35 Deluxe combines premium cosmetic features with the rich and harmonically complex sound of all solid wood construction. As part of its trim package, the dark textures of the I-35 Deluxe's rosewood fingerboard and ebony faceplate are highlighted by ivoroid fingerboard and peghead binding. Each Deluxe series guitar is also fitted with ivoroid "top hat" knobs and pickup rings that are hand made Collings in-house solely for this series of instruments. Uncompromising in every feature, the I-35 Deluxe is built for the discerning electric guitarist. Despite being made with carved maple top and carved mahogany back, it weighs barely half a pound more than the LC versions (which are made with laminated maple veneers). This example has an exceptionally nice figured mahogany back, see photo 12 but in person, especially in natural light, the figure is more impressive.
