Out of all the boutique guitar makers out there, few stand out as proudly as Collings guitars. With strong ties to traditional designs, yet with modern amenities and tasteful appointments, Collings makes some of the finest guitars to ever come through our door. This CJ is no different, and is currently a staff favorite. Gorgeous sunburst top makes this guitar a looker, while the 25 and 1/2" scale and rosewood back and sides give this guitar clarity, projection, and a tight low end. Comes with original hard shell case and k and k pure mini pickup.
From the Collings website:
The Collings Jumbo, or CJ, is our version of the classic slope-shouldered dreadnought, a shape that has enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years. While the CJ is similar in width and depth to the traditional dreadnought, it has a distinctly different tone. Despite its large size this model works well with the optional shorter string scale, resulting in a somewhat percussive bottom end ideal for acoustic blues or other styles that benefit from a more controlled bass response. Of all the Collings body shapes, this is the one most often requested with a sunburst top finish, and the wide range of wood options, neck widths, and string scales allow the CJ to be many different guitars to a wide variety of players.
