SoCo Series

Think of the Collings SoCo as a more comfortable ES-335 style guitar. All the versatility semi-hollow guitars are known for, but with the added comfort of a single-cutaway body. It balances perfectly in your lap and the super comfortable neck carve ensures you won't be putting it down anytime soon. 

SoCo Features


Collings offers both laminate construction (LC) and all solid wood versions of their SoCo model. Regardless of which model you choose, know that every Collings has been rigorously tested and designed to have exceptional response and tonality.


Collings pairs their world-class SoCo with equally world-class pickups from Lollar, Throbak, or Ron Ellis.


A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.


By meticulously hand-sanding between coats, Collings' nitrocellulose lacquer finishes measure between .005" and .007" in final thickness, maximizing acoustic response while providing excellent protection and aesthetics.


Collings electrics feature Gotoh tuners and Kluson tune-o-matic bridges & stop tailpieces.

Custom Trim

Collings crafts their pickguard, knob, pickup surrounds, switch tips, and peghead materials in house, providing custom aesthetics.
