Collings SoCo Deluxe Custom Spruce top in Merlot Finish ID-8207


Collings SoCo Deluxe Custom Spruce top in Merlot Finish

The rich tone and resonance of this guitar is astonishing, even without being plugged in. Notes are effortlessly articulated, responding to your ever command.

Named after Austin's funky and eclectic South Congress Avenue, the SoCo Deluxe is all about attitude. This model brings in elements from both the I-35 and CL models to create a unique hybrid that is all its own. Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too?

This custom Soco Dlx features a custom Spruce top with a beautiful Merlot finish and is topped off with eye catching parallelogram fingerboard inlays.

The unique hand set mortise and tenon neck joint reflects Bill Collings philosophy – ingenuity and functionality. The angled shape of the joint fits perfectly in your palm. Reaching for the 21st fret is effortless; unlike any electric we’ve played before.

A set of ThroBak SLE101 Plus MVX pickups produce the perfect tone to add to an already wonderful guitar!

ThroBak Maximum Vintage Series Pickups set the new standard in Vintage tone and manufacturing accuracy. The first successful humbucking pickup was the legendary 50's Gibson humbucker known among collectors as the Patent Applied For pickup or by it's acronym P.A.F.

Surpassing the specifications of the popular ThroBak Vintage Authentic LTD series pickups the MXV series takes the vintage accurate P.A.F. style reproduction to a new level with Maximum Vintage specifications. The MXV series sets a new standard in vintage Patent Applied For (P.A.F.) tone and manufacturing accuracy.
