This beautiful slope-shouldered dreadnought is a CJ-A from Collings and is made up of gorgeous Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, and Adirondack Spruce for the top. 
Collings has done an incredible job of capturing the sound and feel of the iconic slope shoulder dread that we all know and love, with the tonewoods in question reflective of this inspiration.
The lows are huge and warm, with a balance in the midrange and trebles that makes this guitar so satisfying to dig into with a flatpick, as well as harmonically exciting and lively enough to be equally as engaging when played fingerstyle. 
The Ebony topped Mahogany neck plays magnificently all the way through and coupled with low action and Collings notoriously brilliant fretwork, it really is effortless to play and coax out lush tones for hours on end. 
The guitar is in great condition with a fitted Hardcase.
