Collings CJ Torrefied Maple & Torrefied Adirondack



A one-off from the Collings shop! This custom-built CJ features a stunning set of flamed maple back and sides, and an Adirondack Spruce top (completely torrefied, resulting in a gorgeous ambery finish). A hugely resonant and open-sounding guitar, this would be a perfect fit for anyone who's been waiting for that unique Slope D. It'd be hard to imagine a better all-purpose strumming and flatpicking guitar, but this is also that rare dreadnought that fingerpicks like a breeze and rewards with a broken-in, woody sound that's intensely more mature than a new guitar has any right to be. Priced with TKL case from Collings!
