$5250 Shipped CONUS. This 2017 Collings CJ (Collings Jumbo) Sunburst is MINT-. The guitar is unmarked but there are some, almost imperceptible, pick marks on the pick-guard only seen when turning the guitar around in the light and looking for them. Unable to photo. These (with the factory pickup) are $7150 - If you could find one. You can purchase this like-new Collings CJ and save a lot. Wonderful tone and appearance. No one makes factory custom guitars that are more elegant or wonderful sounding than Collings. Fully bound neck and headstock. It's so factory mint- I've never even installed a strap button on the heel. Only selling because of downsizing and having to sell a few of my world-class guitars.

The Collings Jumbo, or CJ, is Colling's version of the classic slope-shouldered dreadnought (Gibson J45), a shape that has enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years. While the CJ is similar in width and depth to the traditional dreadnought, it has a distinctly different tone. Despite its large size this model works well with the optional shorter string scale, resulting in a somewhat percussive bottom end ideal for acoustic blues or other styles that benefit from a more controlled bass response. Ships in like-new Gibson J45 brown case, shown in photos.

Of all the Collings body shapes, this is the one most often requested with a sunburst top finish, and the wide range of wood options, neck widths, and string scales allow the CJ to be many different guitars to a wide variety of players.
