Simply put, this is the semi-hollow guitar perfected...
Why We Love This
If you're even remotely a fan of semi-hollow guitars, you really owe it to yourself to check a Collings SoCo out. It's got everything you love about this classic model - beautiful looks, versatility, and killer tones - but with a radically elevated build quality level. It never ceases to amaze us how consistent Collings guitars are, especially at the level they're building them.
We recently spec'ed out this Blonde SoCo, and we're blown away with the results. Featuring a flamed maple top set over a Honduran Mahogany body with a Maple center block, there's no shortage of that classic semi-hollow tone. We've skipped the more traditional humbuckers for a sweet pair of Throbak 55/56 P90s, which add equal parts clarity and bite that gives this model a more distinctive tone and response. The tortoise body binding finishes off the look perfectly, keeping things sleek and clean. Priced with hardshell case.
