This Collings SoCo Deluxe is truly captivating! It has a beautiful flamed maple top thats finished in Tobacco Sunburst. The hand-made Ivoroid knobs and truss rod cover really pull the look of this guitar together. However, it plays and sounds even better than it looks. The Lollar DogEar P90's are a perfect fit for this guitar, as they are fat and warm in the neck, but have nice clarity and bite in the bridge. This guitar can easily handle everything from straight up jazz to rock. Collings attention to detail is unmatched, and it's hard to find a better built instrument. It practically plays itself! The original hardshell case is included. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
Condition - Excellent. The guitar was kept in great shape by the original owner. There is one very small ding between the bridge and upper f-hole. It is hard to see unless it is in direct light. The hardware has a very light patina. There is very little to no fret wear, and the frets have plenty of life left. It has been professionally looked over by our luthier.
Setup/Playability - Perfect. The action is low, but there is no buzzing or fretting out. The guitar plays effortlessly and stays in tune great.
