Collings SoCo Deluxe Premium Quilt Tobacco Sunburst Thro Back Pickups ID-6666
Collings SoCo Deluxe Premium Quilt Tobacco Sunburst Thro Back Pickups
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 premium carved, quilted maple top with f-holes over a mahogany back and sides with an inset maple center block. The absolutely stunning finish, a Tobacco Sunburst, sets off the 3 dimensionality of the wood, and is perfectly accented by the custom gold hardware.
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 Soco Deluxe features many custom appointments such as Parallelogram Inlays, custom Tobacco sunburst quilted Maple top, gold hardware and custom black/white top purfling. Most intriguing would be the choice of the custom Thro-Bak humbuckers, which is a new addition to the Collings line.
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.
Our two Adam's (Fluhrer and Hatfield), have become completely enamored with the sound of these pickups, and have even put them to the test with actual PAF pickups - to which they both agree - the Thro-Baks are phenomenal! You have to hear them to believe them - Rich, warm, with a beautiful round note profile, and an almost natural compression, these are the real deal friends, you will not be disappointed. What else would you expect from Collings - nothing but the absolute best!
