SoCo 16 LC

Overview

SoCo 16 LCJust like the vibrant and eclectic South Congress district of Austin, Texas that inspired its name, the Collings SoCo 16 LC brings its own distinctive aesthetic and sonic voice to the tradition of classic semi-hollow electric guitars. Crafted with the best vintage examples of semi-hollow tone in mind, the SoCo 16 LC utilizes a specially developed combination of wood laminates for the top, back and sides that are crafted in-house to create a focused and versatile instrument. With a solid maple center-block and slightly larger body dimensions than its other SoCo siblings, the new 16 LC speaks with a full bodied authority that confidently delivers everything from warm punchy jazz to sparkling airy leads.
