2012 Collings SoCo Deluxe Premium Quilt Tobacco Sunburst TV Jones
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?
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, Ebony fretboard, custom Ivoroid knobs and pickup rings, custom ivoroid pickup surrounds with engraved lines, and a custom Tobacco sunburst quilted Maple top.
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!
This 2012 Collings SoCo Deluxe Premium Quilt Tobacco Sunburst TV Jones is in excellent + condition with only one small dent and a few very minor surface scratches. It has no fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
