$4,800.00

Description

"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

If you're considering adding a semi-hollow guitar to your collection, this gently used 2018 SoCo should be at the top of the list. Unlike a traditional semi-hollow guitar which utilizes a laminate maple top & body, this guitar is all mahogany (no laminates). To our ears, you get a lot of the midrange punch that we typically associate with solid-body mahogany guitars (LP Specials and Juniors) with the airiness of a semi-hollow - a beautiful combination to be sure.

This guitar is simply a joy to play - flawless build quality, set-up, weight, neck carve...not much more you could want in a guitar like this. A versatile, vintage sounding guitar with modern build quality and playability. Did we mention the Bigsby works flawlessly? 

Condition: Excellent save for one patch of finish scratches on the side of the body (indentations into the finish - likely caused by keys in a pocket). 

Fun doesn't being to sum up sitting with this beauty for a few minutes into your favorite amp. Priced with hard case by Ameritage.
