Just like the vibrant and eclectic South Congress district of Austin, Texasthat inspired its name, the Collings SoCo 16 LC brings its own distinctive aesthetic and sonicvoice to the tradition of classic semihollow electric guitars. Crafted with the best vintageexamples of semihollow tone in mind, the SoCo 16 LC utilizes a specially developedcombination 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.
