Collings CJ Short Scale Varnish: Rosewood & German Spruce
– Adirondack Bracing – 1 3/4 Nut – 2 1/4 String Spacing
Just arrived… This Varnish version has everything that our Nitrocellulose finish model has with that extra touch of ol’ time vintage and iconic tone. So if you are searching for a vintage instrument with modern up to date craftsmanship and without any of the problem with vintage guitars this one is for you.
Collings CJ Slope Dreads have HUGE tonal spectrum. Big & warm bass that fills the room. Mids shine and polish up the projection while the trebs shimmer and add a very nice finish. The short scale on this CJ reduces the string tension so fretting is easy and playing all day is absolutely comfortable. It also adds growly and warm depth to the bass and mids. I request special tonewood selections so all of our Collings sound open and smooth right out of the box, just the way we all like ‘em!
You’ll hear the warm Rosewood with articulate and well defined German Spruce top resonanating clear as a bell. The natural coloring in this Rosewood set is spectacular! Not tight or compressed, this one is wide open with the specially selected German top. The upgraded Adirondack Bracing adds additional warmth and open tone. A true keeper!
