(NEW) Some guitar designs are evergreen, and there will always be a place in our hearts for a Gibby-style jumbo. Indeed, there is so much to love about these slope shouldered dreadnoughts, they have an authoritative voice, big and woody, that blends exceptionally well with singing (but can definitely hold its own for leads, hot fingerpicking or heavy strumming).
This CJ (Collings Jumbo) is in a word GORGEOUS. Absolutely perfect dark sunburst sprayed over a Sitka top, blending beautifully into the tortoise bindings and dark-stained mahogany back and sides, set off elegantly by cross-cut ivoroid purfling. This one has a fully tortoise-bound neck and peghead, Waverly open-back tuners, Collings’ “C” shape neck with 1 11/16″ nut and 2 3/16″ string spacing at the saddle. We also made it short scale in the Gibson tradition, and combined with the Sitka top, that gives this guitar an appreciable warmth. It’s just marvelous, isn’t it?
Includes original TKL hardshell case.
