Collings SJ Guitar Mh Sunburst Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides
The Collings SJ is their 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 boast a tremendous volume and mid-range response. The beautiful thing about this guitar is it's surprising bass response. 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 Collings SJ.
It pairs Mahogany back and sides with a Sitka Spruce top for a sound that is very crisp and defined with lots of definition. The Sitka Spruce is perfect for players with a lighter pick attack who also play fingerstyle.
Additional appointments include tortoise style top, back, neck and peghead bindings, pre-war scalloped bracing, double bound "Haircut" peghead, Ebony fingerboard with Ebony SJ Style bridge and a Medium-Fat "C" neck profile.
This guitar features a Sunburst top with a walnut stained back and sides.
