Collings SoCo Deluxe Custom Vintage White ID-6079
Collings SoCo Deluxe Custom Vintage White
Named after Austin's funky and eclectic South Congress Avenue, the Collings 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 fully carved mahogany top with f-holes over a mahogany back and sides with an inset maple center block. The Mahogany top provides a darker, warmer tone than the maple tops will produce (see our City Limits comparisons).
The rich tone and resonance of this guitar is astonishing, even without being plugged in. Notes are effortlessly articulated, responding to your ever command. 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.
This Custom Soco Deluxe features many custom appointments such as Parallelogram Inlays, a Flared Peghead, Bigsby Tremolo, Black/White Top Purfling, Ebony fretboard, and custom Ivoroid knobs and pickup rings.
This Collings Soco Deluxe features twin TV Jones Filter-tron Classic pickups, instead of the standard two humbuckers. TV Jones has been building such fine quality reproductions of Gretsch type pickups that they started using his creations in all of their high end guitars. These pickups reproduce the look, feel, and tone of the classic 50's Gretsch guitars heard on many a Nashville session recording. The bridge has "the" twang tone to put all others to shame. Rock-a-billy, country, swing, jazz, and the list can go on and on, this guitar just sounds as good as it feels & looks!
