Notes: Handbuilt in Austin to the highest standards of craft, the Collings SoCo Deluxe is a blend of two of the world's most iconic electric guitars. Taking the Gibson ES-335 as a starting point, the SoCo Deluxe adds classic Les Paul body styling, and ups the game witha premium tiger maple top with extravagant bookmatched flame. With its solid maple center block and stop tail design, the SoCo Deluxe enhances sustain, with the laminate body providing superior feedback resistance at higher volume levels.

Premium touches include twin Lollar Standard Imperial humbuckers, Sperzel 18:1 tuners, and grained ivoroid binding and hardware throughout. This gleaming example shows handsome flame figure throughout. Moreover, it's been maintained in immaculate 100% original condition, without apparent playwear. The classic gentle C profile neck offers smooth low action over gleaming traditional medium nickel-silver fretwire, and the tone is pure bliss, from blues to bebop to rockabilly heaven.

The instrument is simply a delight to play, with a fresh high-precision setup. Always a welcome find, from one of our favorite builders. One only, call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings (.011). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 4/64" to 5/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.

Case: Original premium Collings arched plush lined hardshell case.
