Default Sold: Collings CJ Sunburst

Purchased this Collings CJ NOS from Custom Shop Guitars in San Antonio December 2018. I believe she’s a 2016 model. Excellent condition.
Here’s info/specs from Collings:
The Collings Jumbo, or CJ, is Collings version of the classic slope-shouldered dreadnought, a shape that has enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years. While the CJ is similar in width and depth to the traditional dreadnought, it has a distinctly different tone. Despite its large size this model works well with the shorter string scale, resulting in a somewhat percussive bottom end ideal for acoustic blues or other styles that benefit from a more controlled bass response.

Features:
[LIST][*]Select sitka spruce top[*]Mahogany back and sides[*]Cross-cut grained ivoroid and wood nitrate rosette[*]Tortoise-style top/back/neck/peghead binding[*]Black/white wood purfling with 1-style walnut backstrip[*]Pre-war scalloped bracing[*]Tortoise-style celluloid pickguard[*]High gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish[*]Mahogany neck[*]Double bound "Haircut" headstock[*]15 degree headstock angle[*]Ebony peghead overlay with inlaid Collings logo[*]Ebony fingerboard with ebony belly-style bridge[*]Mortise and tenon hybrid neck joint[*]20 Frets, neck joins the body at the 14th fret[*]Medium-Fat "C" neck profile and 2 3/16" string spacing[*]14"-26" Compound fingerboard radius[*]1 3/4" Bone nut and drop-in saddle[*]24 7/8" Scale length[*]Medium 18% nickel-silver fretwire[*]Mother of pearl dot fingerboard inlays[*]Fully adjustable truss rod[*]Ebony bridge pins and end pin[*]Nickel Waverly tuners with 16:1 ratio[*]Recommended string gauge - D'Addario EJ-17 (.013"-.056")[*]Collings deluxe hardshell case by TKL

Here’s a review from Custom Shop Guitars on the Collings CJ:
The Collings Jumbo, or CJ, is Collings' version of the classic slope-shouldered dreadnought, a shape that has enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years. While the CJ is similar in width and depth to the traditional dreadnought, it has a distinctly different tone.

Many people just assume that it's a "re-do" of the old Gibson J45 "Slope Shoulder". Visually yes, it is similar to the old Gibson model. But that's pretty much where everything comes to a screeching halt.

First and foremost, the Collings CJ's differentiate themselves from the old J45 with a totally different bracing system. Not to mention, that all CJ's have scalloped bracing unless special ordered without.

So what? Well, this equates to is a very balanced sound that takes out the "Boomyness" that the old J45 is known for. Typically, the Collings CJ has a very, very balanced tone. No muddy bottom - No tinny highs. Again, just a great fully balanced tone.

Smile Nice one!

Nice CJ! Beautiful burst...

I have dealt with the OP and the axe I received was at least as nice as described and shipped well and fast.

Best on this

Paul
