Collings SJ


The SJ is Collings' version of what is commonly called a small Jumbo. Although the 16 inch lower bout is slightly wider than a dreadnought, and the sides almost as deep, the tight curve at the waist creates in a very different sound chamber. SJs, especially examples in maple, typically have a more pronounced midrange response when compared to a dreadnought, making them ideal candidates for a rounded cutaway. Players looking for the bass and overall volume of a large guitar, but with lots of treble clarity and midrange crunch, often find just what they need in the curvaceous SJ.

The beautiful combination of sitka spruce and mahogany is not unfamiliar to guitar players! Mahogany is a powerful standard with pronounced midrange punch, clarity and dry overtones. Combined with sitka spruce, you have an expressive guitar perfect for recording, playing live, or even just jamming along to some Bruce Springsteen on your couch!
