"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
This stunning Aged Lacquer Collings SoCo just in on consignment!!
Vintage purists will absolutely love this guitar. Though a laminate top, there's a lot of flame in the maple - closer to what you see on the carved top SoCo's (and arguably the perfect amount of flame). We love the now-standard neck binding as well!
Tonally this guitar is a monster. The bridge pickup (Throbak) is full of Les Paul bite - midrangy (in a wonderful way) but the semi-hollow construction adds that ES335 "air" to each note. The neck pickup is full, articulate, and gets very close to the coveted Allman Brother's Fillmore tone (that's our standard benchmark for a good humbucker tone - isn't it everyone's?).
Condition: Like new.
If you've been back and forth about whether or not you'd like to let go of either your Les Paul or ES335 in favor of the other, this guitar will end your dilemma - it's like having the best of both worlds! Priced with hardshell case.
On consignment, no trades please.
