A near mint condition 2017 CJ-35 Sunburst handmade by Collings in Austin, TX.
The pre-war era of American flattop guitar making has come to be known as “golden” for a reason. Lauded for its short but brilliant periods of construction innovation, the years from 1930-1942 were filled with new instrument runs that featured bracing, fret access and body dimension changes that would define the features and sounds of the modern acoustic guitar. Emerging out of our fascination with this era of guitar making history, Collings introduced the CJ-35. With a stiff and flexible Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides in a slope-shouldered body, their new variation of the CJ model incorporates a non-scalloped bracing configuration featuring three tone bars and a short 24 7/8″ scale length. This design provides the CJ-35 with a beautiful balance of deep piano-like bass and powerful full-bodied highs, complimented by a focused dynamic range for exceptionally even note projection. As a result, it is one of their most versatile large-bodied guitars, equally well-suited for a variety of playing styles.
