SoCo LCNamed 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.
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 thousandths in final thickness, maximizing acoustical response while providing excellent protection.
Collings electrics feature Gotoh SG301 tuners and Kluson tune-o-matic bridges and stop tailpieces.
With a fully bound body, mother of pearl dot inlays, and top hat knobs, appointments for an LC electric are available in a variety of colors and materials to match your chosen finish.
