(NEW) Collings never rests on their laurels. They've once again looked to the past to take us all into the future, and the CJ-45T is their latest jumbo design. As part of the Traditional line, it is a lightly built, highly responsive guitar with a thin finish, a small maple bridge plate, Sitka spruce braces and no tongue brace. It has a newly designed bracing pattern and a distinct "C" neck shape that measures a healthy .986" thickness at the first fret. It all adds up to a more vintage-flavored experience, but with Collings meticulous fit, finish and materials selection.
The tight-grained Sitka top is simply perfect, and as we all know, nobody sprays a better burst. The mahogany back and sides have a dark stain. Specs include a 1 3/4" nut with 2 5/16" string spacing at the cut-through saddle. Short 24 7/8" scale length with a rosewood fingerboard, unique to Collings acoustics. It comes strung with medium strings and goodness, it has all the wood, warmth and thump that we're after from this shape of guitar.
The CJ-45T is the real deal! Another winner from our good friends in Austin.
