Collings SJ Small Jumbo Acoustic Guitar


1 Only In Stock

The SJ is Collings' 'Small Jumbo' model, inspired by the legendary Gibson J-185. Although the 16 inch lower bout is slightly wider than a dreadnought, and the sides almost as deep, the tight curve at the waist creates in a very different sound chamber. Players looking for the bass and overall volume of a large guitar, but with lots of treble clarity and midrange crunch, often find just what they need in the curvaceous SJ. This model comes with a stunning Spruce / European maple timber combination, pre-war scalloped bracing, high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, ebony fingerboard with ebony SJ style bridge and mother of pearl Modern Diamond fretboard inlays, and Gold Schaller mini-tuners with 1:14 ratio This fine instrument comes with a Collings deluxe hardshell case by TKL.
