Collings Guitars Introduces the SoCo 16 LC

October 22, 2012
imgJust like the vibrant and eclectic South Congress district of Austin, Texas that inspired its name, the new 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 hollowbody 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, rich, and incredibly 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. Rooted in tradition but with an original new take on the form, the SoCo 16 LC brings the best sounds of the past firmly into the future.
