Collings CJ35, original owner, excellent condition +. This golden era inspired Jumbo is simply superb. Great neck carve, killer balanced tone and just a stellar instrument overall. Mahogany sides and back, 1 3/4" nut width & 24 7/8" scale, unbound haircut headstock. The guitar is also ultra light. See full specs below.

It is my only acoustic and I'm only selling since my number as come up for a custom acoustic build that i have been on a waiting for list for a couple of years. This guitar is a cannon, it is one of the finest instruments that i have owned - you will be happy. I can provide a clip to serious buyers.

Wish this was up for sale when I picked up mine new 2 months ago. For anyone considering, I played a number of these - and imo - best acoustic I have played.
