Collings CJ35 A Adirondack Sunburst

The pre-war era of American flattop guitar making has come to be known as "golden" for a reason. Lauded for its short but brilliant periods of construction innovation, the years from 1930-1942 were filled with new instrument runs that featured bracing, fret access and body dimension changes that would define the features and sounds of the modern acoustic guitar. Emerging out of their fascination with this era of guitar making history, Collings is proud to introduce the CJ35. Available with a Mahogany back and slope-shouldered body, this variation of their CJ model incorporates a non-scalloped bracing configuration featuring three tone bars and a short 24 7/8" scale length. This design provides the CJ35 with a beautiful balance of deep piano-like bass and powerful full-bodied highs, complimented by a focused dynamic range for exceptionally even note projection. As a result, the CJ35 is one of their most versatile large-bodied guitars, equally well-suited for a variety of playing styles.

This Collings CJ35 A features a sunburst solid Adirondack Spruce top, solid Honduran Mahogany back and sides, a 1 3/4" nut width and a 24 7/8" scale length. Comes complete with a deluxe TKL case.
