Collings CJ German Spruce and Indian Rosewood Short Scale Tobacco Sunburst Top ID-5705
Collings CJ German Spruce and Indian Rosewood Short Scale Tobacco Sunburst Top
The Collings Jumbo, or CJ, is Colling's version of the classic slope-shouldered dreadnought, a shape that has enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years. While the Collings CJ is similar in width and depth to the traditional dreadnought, it has a distinctly different tone. The CJ accommodates a variety of playing styles and genres without skipping a beat. It even suits fingerstyle players.
This CJ features a German Spruce top underneath a gorgeous Collings sunburst. German Spruce is one of the most versatile tonewoods, offering the perfect balance between responsiveness and headroom. This instrument also features a short scale length, reducing the string tension slightly for an additional level of responsiveness and easy playability. The bindings are tortoise throughout, and is a very classy look. A tigerstripe pickguard completes the look on this incredible guitar.
Collings makes guitars with such superb tone and aesthetics. The craftmanship is top notch and comes out in the tone, playability, and feel of their great instrument. This guitar is truly a great one to add to any players collection.
The tone is incredibly balanced with a rich low end, powerful mid-range, and sparkling trebles.
