Description

Just in from NAMM 2020! This stunning Collings SoCo features a remarkable "Quiddle" Maple top ~ it's rare that this wood is available for a guitars this large, so it's easy to see why our friends in Austin wanted to present it in all its glory. A full-body shaded edge burst akin to what you'd find on one of Collings' Koa flattops covers this guitar from head to toe, allowing the wood's natural beauty to shine through. Outfitted with low-wind Lollar Imperials, this SoCo covers the tonal gamut from pianoesque cleans to searing high-gain rock n' roll with glee. Priced with Ameritage hardshell case!

Collings' official description: Sporting a refined, full body and neck “edge burst” frequently featured on our Koa guitars, this SoCo Deluxe with a unique "Quiddle" maple top demonstrates that flashy options are not required to exude class and character. The tortoise top hat knobs and pickup rings are custom made in our Austin, TX shop and perfectly match the tortoise binding with black and white purfling surrounding the body, neck, and peghead.
