Pre Owned 2014 Collings CJ Sitka Spruce and Mahogany Short Scale ID-9493
Pre Owned 2014 Collings CJ Mh SS
This gorgeous short scale Collings CJ features a Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, with a custom full body sunburst. This is a truly remarkable sounding instrument; standing up to flat-picking, and finger-picking alike. It has quickly become a shop favorite here, at Artisan.
Sitka is ideal for players who find Adirondack Spruce too punchy, bright, or stiff, but do not want to sacrifice on clarity. This versatile top wood accentuates the warm round aspects of the guitar's tone. The top-end is sweet and crisp; with a driving, focused midrange and low-end. The Mahogany back and sides allow for distinct note definition, warmth and projection.
This custom guitar is also equipped with Adirondack Spruce top Braces; which are lighter and stiffer than the standard Sitka Braces. As a result, this instrument is incredibly responsive. Notes are rich and full, up and down the neck. The midrange and high-end sparkle will surely cut through in any band setting, while the well balanced and defined lows will fill any open space.
This CJ is elegantly appointed with a grained ivoroid bound body, fingerboard, and peghead, and Gold Waverly tuners. It is finished off with their dark Walnut stain, a style 3 backstripe, a tigerstripe pickguard and a gorgeous Tobacco Sunburst finish. The 1 11/16" standard nut width has been upgraded to a 1 3/4" nut for easier chordal fingering, as well.
This Pre Owned 2014 Collings CJ Sitka Spruce and Mahogany Short Scale is in excellent condition. It is equipped with an LR Baggs Anthem SL, which translates the tonal response of this instrument very well. This guitar does include the original custom Collings hardshell case.
