I have the identical Collings CJ35G, and it's been my favorite. Slopes I've owned in the past: 1946 Gibson Southern Jumbo, 1951 Gibson Southern Jumbo, 1998 Bourgeois Martin Simpson, and a 1994 Gibson Roy Smeck Reissue.

I'm very partial to Collings, so the CJ35 has been my favorite that I've ownes. Best I've played? A pre war AJ. Would like to try a Fairbanks or Kopp.

I'd like to try a Fairbanks also. But with the purchase of the P*W last November, I'm pretty solid on the 14fret slopes. I'm out of room for anything else.

I noticed Gryphon's and Norman's Rare guitars have vintage CJs. Very tempting

'58 Epiphone Texan... great guitar, wide open sound, big vee neck. The long scale seems to make a little difference too.

How do they compare? Specifically, how does your Collings compare tonally with the vintage Gibson?
