Collings SoCo Deluxe Scarlett SB Quilt Top w/Throbak SLE 101+ (2015)

Sold

"Every day we try to make a better guitar, every day. You're trying to reach for more, trying to do better, not trying to do the same. A lot of companies are trying to do the same, and that's okay - that's their deal. We're trying to stretch that. Our goal is a little more." - Bill Collings

Just took in this mint SoCo Deluxe in a stunning Scarlett Sunburst! 

We like to think of the SoCo model as a more comfortable ES-335 style guitar. All the versatility these types of guitars are known for with the added comfort of a single-cut body. It balances perfectly in your lap and feels like a more refined version of the classic ES-335. 

This guitar sounds phenomenal thanks in no small part to the Throbak SLE 101+ pickups it's equipped with. The bridge and neck pickup blend perfectly - no huge leaps in volume or bass when switching from the bridge to the neck pickup. Excellent clarity and punch without being strident or sterile. Anything from snappy and twangy to fat and warm are on tap. Totally up to you and your preferred playing style.

Condition: Mint save for one tiny, pinhead sized impression in the top just north of the neck humbucker. No issues. 

Priced with hardshell case.
