(USED) Collings CJ, Sitka, Maple, Short Scale – $4,175

(USED)  A simply remarkable Collings Jumbo. As Advanced Jumbos go, it’s hard to get more “Advanced” than one of these. Just arrived back on consignment, this iconic Collings CJ deluxe, this one in flame maple and Sitka spruce in SHORT SCALE. Nice. Add nickel Waverly tuners, tortoise pickguard, 1 and 3/4″ bone nut, very tasteful “flourish” peghead inlay, and tortoise binding and cosscut ivoroid purfling all over.

The stars just aligned perfectly when this guitar was made.

There’s not a lot that can be said about a guitar built by this builder, with these specifications, with these woods that you have not already heard in your dreams. It is what dreams are made of, if you dream of great guitars, as we do here at AMW.

And then there is this: Some folks think maple guitars are “bright” or “thin”. They are WRONG. If they think that, they have only played BAD maple guitars. “Good” maple guitars are not bright or thin.

Great maple guitars are dark, full, fat, and warm. This is a great maple guitar.
