Collings SJ Custom German Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Sunburst

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 typically have a more pronounced midrange response when compared to a dreadnought, which translates into more note definition. 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.

Like most all Collings, this guitar has more than ample volume and presence, which is backed up by a highly versatile custom German Spruce top. German Spruce falls in-between Sitka and Adirondack in terms of stiffness, therefore it is very versatile for many playing styles. It can be soft and sweet or loud and aggressive, all depending on how you play.

This SJ is a natural strummer, with clear chords that sound remarkably balanced with all the power you could ever hope for. Fingerstyle lines are also quite nice, offering a surprising amount of response thanks to the German Spruce top.

This guitar has custom appointments including the gorgeous sunburst finish and Nickel Schaller M6 Mini tuners.
