SOLD – (NEW) Collings City Limits Jazz (Merlot) – The Name Says It All! – SOLD

(NEW) The Collings City Limits JAZZ model. The name says it all.

Built with a fully hollow Honduran mahogany body, carved European spruce top, and modern stylings, this sleek thin-bodied archtop is made for JAZZ. We ordered this one in the uber-elegant MERLOT finish with the Broken Glass inlay pattern. We have found the Merlot finish to be particularly difficult to photograph. The pics always look a little more “red” where the actual color is a distinctive Pinot Noir. Like with all wine, the more discriminating your taste, the more that matters…until it doesn’t…
