Before deciding to return to the Fretboard Summit this year, Collings Guitars embarked on a special journey, constructing three pairs of guitars that mark both a commitment to excellence in lutherie and a new chapter in their company's story. Instead of bringing available examples of their work to the conference, the master builders and designers at Collings conceived these hand-built sets of instruments -- they'd be made from matching sets of materials, individually voiced and selected to represent the finest characteristics of the guitars that have come to signify the Collings name. While Collings has long been considered the world's bar-setter for quality amongst small-shop acoustic guitars, their dedication to craftsmanship in the electric guitar realm is similarly unsurpassed. And these commemorative pairs of instruments bring that idea to the forefront of their design practices.
This pair of guitars, a SoCo LC Deluxe and C100 Deluxe, feature stunning matched figured Maple bodies and Spruce tops. The natural finishes let the beauty of the wood speak for itself; and the SoCo represents a new foray into laminated Spruce topped electrics from our friends at Collings. We can't wait to see what's next!
