We’ve now done the Collings SJ in just about every tonewood combination from Maple to Wenge to Brazilian and back, and among our most popular offerings has been the classic pairing of MAHOGANY with ADIRONDACK spruce. This instrument is drop-dead gorgeous and has the (C profile) favored 1 11/16″ nut width with nickel Schaller tuners. String spacing is 2 3/16″ at the saddle. As always with Collings’ Gibson-inspired designs, the neck is a comfortable “C” shape.
The short scale makes it extra easy to play, and the shade burst against the tortoise binding is to die for! A perfectly balanced gig-worthy guitar with impressive headroom and a sweet woodiness. Speaking of woodiness, notice some of the premium “bear claw” figure in the Adirondack spruce.
