(NEW) Collings CJ-35, Sitka Spruce, Mahogany, Sunburst – $4,860

(NEW) Slope-shouldered perfection!  The CJ-35 might well be the pinnacle of this classic design, combining the warm and woody sound of the originals with Collings’ signature midrange sparkle and just enough “thump”.  The CJ-35 is an excellent all-purpose guitar, ample in volume and not afraid of a pick, but certainly responsive enough for fingerstyle.  This one has a Sitka spruce

This one has a *flawless* Sitka spruce top and mahogany back

(USED, MINT) Collings C10, Sitka, Walnut – $3,125

(USED, MINT) You know how we love the Collings C-10 model. It wears many hats and does everything well. So, when Collings told us he had “discovered” that Black walnut was an excellent tonewood for (smaller) guitars, we jumped on the bandwagon and ordered the basic C-10 model in Black walnut – because we care. Sure enough, the walnut adds
