The Collings Jumbo is their version of the classic slope-shouldered dreadnought, 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. This guitar works very well for acoustic blues or other styles that benefit from a more controlled bass response and a punchy tone that is an absolute delight to play.

This guitar comes in a vivid sunburst with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish that is meticulously hand-sanded between coats to achieve a final thickness between .005-.007 inches. This time-consuming process maximizes acoustic response while providing for excellent protection and aesthetics.

This consigned guitar has been well kept by its owner and is in excellent condition. Collings guitars have proven to hold their value well and makes for a great keeper.
