SoCo LC Deluxe
SoCo LC DeluxeNamed after the vibrant and eclectic South Congress district of Austin, TX, The SoCo LC combines some of the most well-loved features and sounds from the heritage of semi-hollow guitars with a distinctive look and feel all its own. A 15" lower bout gives this SoCo a comfortable, well balanced feel and exceptional note articulation. The single-cutaway body design makes for greater mass and contact with the neck joint, providing solid low-end response and a resonance you can feel throughout the instrument.
Deluxe model features include ivoroid fingerboard and peghead binding and our custom ivoroid knobs and pickup rings. Featuring our custom laminate construction, the SoCo LC Deluxe provides a focused, classic tone in our most premium aesthetic configuration.
Laminate Recipe Tone Shaping
Through extensive R&D and critical listening, each Collings laminate electric guitar has been constructed with various woods, grain orientations and densities to have exceptional response and tonality custom suited to each LC model we offer.
Low-wind Lollar Imperials have a slightly brighter tonality than standards, lending them an exceptional definition and touch response that communicates the harmonic content of the instrument beautifully.
A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel.
By meticulously hand-sanding between coats, our nitrocellulose lacquer finishes measure between .005” and .007” in final thickness, maximizing acoustic response while providing excellent protection and aesthetics.
Collings Deluxe electrics feature Gotoh SG301 tuners and Kluson tune-o-matic bridges and stop tailpieces.
Custom ivoroid knobs and pickup rings are handmade in our shop and only available on a Collings Deluxe electric.
