Collings CJ Mh A, Mahogany & Adirondack Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


If you love the sound and feel of the Collings CJ, but prefer a natural finish, well - here you have it! With the bonus of a solid 15 years of opening up time for the Adirondack spruce top. The slope-shouldered dreadnought is no mere variation of its square-shouldered cousin; it has a unique voice all its own. This 2006 model has a full 25-1/2" scale length, giving it some notable power and clear focus for single note playing. Strum out some full six-string chords on it, and you get a big open sound perfect for vocal accompaniment or filling out rhythm in a band. Condition of this pre-owned model is excellent; signs of prior ownership are minimal, with no dings or scratches.
