Collings Acoustic Guitars - CJ35 SB

$4,860.00

SOLD. Call us for options.

This new Collings CJ35 SB acoustic guitar, serial# 22871,  delivers an exceptional pre-war '30s voicing and real presence due in part to the non-scalloped, three tone bar Adirondack braces. This guitar model was inspired, in part, by our owner Jim's favorite vintage Gibson J-35, loaned to Bill Collings during the developmental stages. The result is a guitar with a warm, full sound with clear, pristine highs, rich bass and incredible projection. The Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides are a perfect pairing and help give this slope shouldered dread remarkable sustain and resonance - just one reason why both fingerstyle players and strummers have found a home with the CJ.

This has a slightly shorter scale (24 7/8"), a spacious neck profile, as well as 1 3/4" nut width and 2 5/16" string spacing, all of which make it a truly comfortable player. The impeccable build quality on this guitar is to be expected from Collings - it's perfect - but really take a look at this. The burst finish, haircut headstock, Tigerstripe pickguard and ivoroid binding on this all come together so perfectly. This Collings CJ35 SB includes a deluxe Collings hardshell case and setup to your specs from one of our luthiers.
