2010 Collings CJ

With a long 25.5” scale, scalloped-braced Sitka top and Indian rosewood back and sides, this CJ marries the best of traditional slope-shouldered and square-shouldered Dreadnought tones. The CJ is both loud and subtle, and offers excellent balance, a strong fundamental, and the mid-range focus we all love in a slope-shouldered dreadnought.

In excellent condition and with a fresh setup by our shop, this Collings CJ looks and plays just right. The frets show very light playwear in the open position, and the finish doesn’t show any pickwear. There are a few very small dings in the top’s lacquer and the back edge of the headstock that are the guitar’s only noteworthy flaws.

The neck has a full-feeling medium C carve, 25.5” scale a 1-11/16” nut and string spread of 2-3/16” at the saddle. Neck thickness at the 1st fret is .884”. Set up with 12s and a lowish 4-5.5 64ths action.

16” wide slope-shoulder body with ivoroid bindings and classy 5-ply top purflings, celluloid and wooden rosette, bound ebony fingerboard with pearl dot markers, bound rosewood headstock overlay with pearl Collings logo, belly bridge, tortoise celluloid pickguard, bone nut and saddle, ebony pins, and Waverly tuning machines.

With original hardshell case.
