Collings Acoustic Guitars - CJ MhA SS SB Custom
"This Collings CJ MhA SS SB Custom is another tremendous instrument born out of our J35/CJ collaboration with Collings. You know if it says Collings on the headstock, the guitar will be built and finished to perfection. This guitar does not disappoint."
"The special features we chose in the guitar make it a reward to all our efforts in creating a modern slope D. Three straight (non-scalloped) Adirondack tone bars make for the wonderful quick and focused response associated with pre-war slope Ds. The short scale ever-so-slightly eases string tension and, along with the shorter reach, makes this CJ a blast to play - and very different from the traditional long scale scalloped dreadnaughts. This has a breathtaking sunburst finish that is done with Collings perfection. The tiger stripe pickguard, simple single-stripe ivoroid binding on the body, neck and peg head, and dark stained Mahogany back and sides give this guitar a timeless, absolutely perfect appearance. The Adirondack Spruce top is visually beautiful and adds to the crisp, clear top end of this guitar." - Jim B.
This Custom CJ is a jaw dropper in sound and appearance - Bill crafted this short scale (24 7/8") guitar based on our owner Jim Baggett's favorite vintage Gibson J-35. The nutwidth is 1 3/4" with 2 1/4" saddle spacing. The straight (non-scalloped) Adirondack bracing, along with no tongue brace adds to the already amazing sound and resonance. We're very proud to offer this amazing acoustic. Read more about our Mass Street Music Collings Custom CJs here and check out Jim playing one here:
