One can safely say there is no other guitar like this in the World. The 2nd Soco 16LC produced, this was then handed to Darren Wenzel who carried out the stunning custom paintwork.Bill Collings'  passion for Hot Rods captured in  the design of what is a great sounding larger bodied version of the Soco.It is in new condition and unplayed.I would expect that serious parties would make contact to come and try the guitar before placing any offers.Collings warranty is non transferable and as such not available on this guitar.
