Collings CJ Guitar PreOwned 2006 Mh ASB Adirondack and Mahogany with Sunburst Finish
The Collings Jumbo, or CJ, is Collings' 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, as this guitar beautifully demonstrates.
The topwood on this guitar is Adirondack Spruce, which is very powerful, yet, versatile and known for it's lush bass response and easy playability. The back and sides are mahogany, which produces clear and distinct notes and is very well appreciated in the recording studio, as it is known to be a bit more balanced in front of a microphone than rosewood.
Additional appointments include a 1 3/4" Nut Width, Varnish finish, gorgeous sunburst, custom Ivoroid body binding, ebony fretboard and bridge, Brazilian Rosewood Veneer, Nickle Waverly Tuners, Long Dot Inlay, and 3 Style Backstrip.
This Pre-Owned 2006 Collings CJ Mh ASB Adirondack and Mahogany with Sunburst Finish is in Good Conditon with some light surface scratches and a few dings on the top. There is also one Finish Crack on the back of the guitar. The finish Crack is 3" long and is located 1 1/2" from the Backstrip on the Treble side. This guitar has very minimal to no play wear or fret wear.
We have attempted to capture these in the detailed photos posted below.
Includes Original Hardshell Case.
