COLLINGS CJ SB. With Original Collings Case. Beautiful Sunburst!


Stunning CJ SB (Sunburst) acoustic guitar. No pickup. Comes with the original really high quality Collings case. Excellent condition.

It's a tone monster and a cannon.


Looking for cash sale but might consider trading down on Lowden, Mcilroy, Martin, Atkin,Collings, Santa Cruz, Bourgeois or other boutique acoustic guitars.

The Collings Jumbo, or CJ, is our version of the classic slope-shouldered dreadnought, a shape thathas enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years. While the CJ is similar in width and depth to the traditionaldreadnought, it has a distinctly different tone. Despite its large size this model works well with the optionalshorter string scale, resulting in a somewhat percussive bottom end ideal for acoustic blues or other styles that benefit from a more controlled bass response. 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.

Pitty I don’t live in Ireland! I have a marvelous S22 from Lowden. With Cuban mahogany B&S. I love the sloped shoulders of this Collings much more.
Is there a way to make a deal? I live in the Netherlands

Best regards,

Btw mine doesn’t have a cutaway, just the original Big jumbo body with a clear cedar top that keeps the sound very clear at all
Times. There is a factory build in Highlander pickup installed that sounds very good,

I’ve an Atkin J43, Lowden F35 and a 66’ J50 if you change your mind about a trade deal. I thought this Collings was sold. Check out my withdrawn. Cheers Kev.

@Kevin Carney: You have some nice guitars there alright. I think we both might be infected with the same disease. lol. I'd swap for your Lowden but ideally I'm looking for a cash deal. Cheers

Haha yeah I agree! That’s a stunning D35 you have there.
So hard to get the cash for them! Once they are over 3 grand.
I have a D2H here also. That’s probably fairly similar to the CJ? Same woods anyways. Slope shoulder v Dreadnought.
If I’m down that way any time soon I’ll come and try it out if you still have it..

@Kevin Carney: I had a D2H and the CJ is very different and nicer to my ears. Much more balanced than the bottom heavy dread plus lots of rich overtones, it sounds like a piano and has a more versatile tone than the D2H which to me is a bluegrass cannon that's too loud to sing over. Ha! Yeah you're welcome to call anytime. Lots of guitars here...too many!

I’ll let you know. Be great to play all of them!
