Our newest Collings SoCo Deluxe is sporting a beautiful, very realistic, aged lacquer finish. What's really impressed us most about the aging that Collings is doing is that they're all different. There isn't a uniform appearance to them, or a "one size fits all" approach to the aging - something some relics are guilty of. The aging on this particular SoCo is very subtle and consists of a slightly "foggy" looking finish, a few subtle weather checks, lightly aged hardware, and yellowed plastics and binding. The result is all the playability, build quality, and tone we've come to expect from a SoCo Deluxe, just one that looks like it's been played for 40 years. Yes please! Priced with a hardshell case.
