Collings CJ Guitar Pre-Owned 2011with German Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides

The Collings Jumbo, or CJ, is a classic interpretation of the slope-shouldered dreadnought, a size and shape that has enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years. From Zach Brown to Lyle Lovett, the list of iconic CJ players is growing. It accommodates those looking for the feel and style of a J45 with the craftsmanship and perfection of a Collings.

This venerable workhorse guitar has all the hallmarks of a pre-war Gibson, like details such as the haircut peghead shape, the tortoise pick guard and the C-shaped 1 3/4" wide neck. This guitar is finished off with custom "deluxe" style appointments, such as a fully bound ivoroid body, German Spruce Top, and custom Rosette.

This custom CJ features the incredibly versatile German Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. German Spruce offers the perfect balance between responsiveness and quick note decay, ideal for flat pickers and finger pickers. Paired this with the mahogany back and sides and expect the voice to be clear and punchy, ideal for recording.

This Pre-Owned 2011 Collings CJ with German Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides is in Excellent Condition with only some light surface scratches on the pickguard as well as a some on the top. We have attempted to capture these in the detailed photos below.
