Here’s a beautiful 2008 Collings SJ, in blonde maple, with gold Schaller tuners. I have a particular love for maple bodied guitars; there is something about the clear treble and punch that is perfect for my style. The Collings SJ (small jumbo) has plenty of power, bass and volume with a great midrange that makes it ideal for strumming or finger picking, and it sounds great with a capo anywhere on the neck. Select sitka spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, a flamed maple neck, gold tuners, handsome bound “haircut” headstock, pre-war scalloped bracing and beautiful mother of pearl “modern diamond” fretboard inlays. A full sized guitar, only “small” compared to a jumbo jumbo — like a Gibson J-200. Gorgeous! With hardshell case. SN# 15152.
