(USED) 2007 Collings SJ, Small Jumbo, Sitka, Maple – $3,395

(USED) Is there a such thing as a “perfect” guitar? How would we define it? We would probably want a guitar with a rich, authoritative bass that never got muddy… crystal clear trebles with an undeniable musical chime… volume to rise to the top of any situation… a comfortable, narrow waist for comfort during extended sessions… and while we’re at it, how about classy good looks? Since you’re asking, yes, we like blondes!

This is just such a guitar. The Collings SJ, as nature intended it, in warm and wonderful Sitka spruce and flame maple. This guitar does everything well. EVERYTHING. The voice is direct, full-bodied and articulate. She’s all broken in. The action is low. We are ready to go here!

Specs include 1 11/16″ nut and 2 3/16″ saddle spacing, full 25.5″ scale, Collings’ “C” neck profile on a gorgeous flame-y maple neck. Bound neck and peghead.

If we had to find something wrong, or rather, unusual with this guitar, it would be that it was originally ordered with Waverly tuners, a cost upgrade from Collings, but the last owner chose to retrofit the spec Schallers. The old tuner screw holes have been filled with hardwood dowels. The new tuners function perfectly. Fretwear is next to none, no cracks, a few very faint scratches on the headcap. An absolutely wonderful example of one of our favorite models.
