Pre Owned 2013 Collings SoCo Deluxe Mahogany with Dog Hair Finish and TV Jones Pickups
Named after Austin's funky and eclectic South Congress Avenue, the Collings 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?
This custom Soco Dlx features a fully carved mahogany top with f-holes over a mahogany back and sides with an inset Alder center block. The Mahogany top provides a darker, warmer tone than the maple tops will produce.
This particular guitar has a “Doghair” finish on the entire guitar. This is derived from a white grain filler beneath a translucent layer of dark lacquer – that others have attempted to copy, as yet still a secret known only to our friends at Collings Guitars. The grain of the Mahogany has beautiful specks of white set against the natural luster of the body.
This Collings 290 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 Pre Owned 2013 Collings SoCo Deluxe Mahogany with Dog Hair Finish and TV Jones Pickups is in excellent + condition with no wear to mention and includes the original hardshell case.
