Collings SoCo Deluxe w/ Premium Quilt Top & Acid Wash Charcoal Burst ID-13687


Collings SoCo Deluxe w/ Premium Quilt Top

Collings’ website has this to say about the Collings Soco Deluxe: Named afer Austin’s funky and eclectic South Congress Avenue, the SoCo Dlx 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 aren't any laminate woods here; the top is all solid and meticuliously 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.

Plug this SOCO in and you'll be in a world of sonic heaven with the Lollar Low Wind Imperial Humbuckers! Based on lower output PAFs often found in vintage 335s, this pickup boasts a brighter overall tone compared with the standard Lollar Imperial®. This results in exceptional definition for any chord voicing and overall great presence for cutting through the mix. You'll also find the bottom strings hold together noticeably longer without distorting than most humbuckers. The low wind is ideal for the occasional Les Paul that sounds darker in the neck position, or for guitars with darker tones in general.
