Collings SoCo Deluxe Tobacco Sunburst High Wind Imperial Humbuckers Modern "Jazz" Wiring ID-5623
Collings SoCo Deluxe Tobacco Sunburst High Wind Imperial Humbuckers Modern "Jazz" Wiring
Collings’ website has this to say about the Soco Deluxe: 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? They couldn’t have said it better.
The SoCo Deluxe is slightly larger than the I-35, featuring the same Maple/Mahogany combination. There are no laminate woods here; the top is all solid and meticulously carved by hand. Bill Collings has experience in maximizing the peak resonance of each piece of Maple. The fullness and vibratory resonance, even when unplugged, is, well, incredible. 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 guitar features Collings version of "Jazz Wiring" and Lollar's "standard wax potted" Imperial pickups. This modern wiring scheme will allow for a smoother and more gradual volume taper when used in combination with the tone controls. There will be a loss of high frequencies when dialing back a volume setting with this scheme, which is more consistent with a traditional jazz tone.
