Collings CJ Guitar SS with Sunburst 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 Collings 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 short 24 7/8" scale length, the haircut peghead shape, the tigerstipe guard and the C-shaped 1 3/4" wide neck. Trim this with a custom "deluxe" style appointments, such as a fully bound ivoroid body, and a stunning Collings sunburst and suddenly have a knockout ideal for any audience.

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.
