470 JL  Julian Lage Signature

The success of the Collings OM1 JL combined with Julian Lage’s love of electric guitars meant a second Collings-Julian collaboration was inevitable. But following such a highly praised signature model with yet another meant leaving nothing on the table. From its organic beginnings, the process envisioned by both parties was something designed and built from the sound up. The Collings 470 JL is the result of years-long conversations, engineering, testing, tweaking, playing, and listening. And then doing it all over again until it was right. From first sketches through plugging in the final prototypes, every aspect of this model inside and out is the result of a unique approach, technique, and style - both from the builder’s and player’s point of view - culminating in a one-of-a-kind electric guitar experience.

OM1 Jlの成功とジュリアンのエレキギター愛が相まり、コリングスとの2度目のコラボレーションは避けられないものでありました。高評価を得たジュリアンのシグネチャーモデルの次となるものを作る両者のプロセスは新たにゼロからの始まりでもありました。470JLの製作には出来上がるまでに数年にわたる会話、エンジニアリング、テスティング、微調整、プレイング、リスニング、この過程が幾度にわたり繰り返され出来上がったものです。 最初のスケッチから最終的なプロトタイプに到達するまで、このモデルの内外のあらゆる側面はビルダーとプレイヤー両方の視点から独自のアプローチ、テクニック、スタイルが作られ、唯一無二の最高のエレキギターが完成しました。 ジュリアンと共に満を持してこのモデルを紹介いたします。
