Collings CJ Custom Varnish Finish Adirondack / Honduran Mahogany 2010 Preowned

This very special Collings CJ could be the ultimate slope shoulder dreadnought. The CJ model is rightly regarded as one of Collings' best models, This custom-ordered model has plenty of deluxe features, including Collings' much-lauded Varnish finish. This method of finishing is time-consuming and expensive, but results in a much thinner, more broken-in tone, giving this CJ an airy, responsive, vintage-inspired tone.

Other custom upgrades include an Adirondack spruce top, pre-war scalloped bracing, Style 3 backstrip, and a gorgeous amber sunburst. The guitar is in fantastic condition for its age - there is barely a mark on it. The binding has aged to a beautiful deep cream, and the sunburst is spectacularly rich and three-dimensional.

This is one of the finest slope-shoulder guitars we've had through the shop. It has the classic tone and vibe of the great slope-shoulder guitars, with added depth, richness and complexity. Comes with original Collings hard case, certificate of Authenticity, and Bill Collings-signed label.
