Here is a lovely Collings SJ Maple bodied steel string guitar, built in late 1998 in Austin Texas and with a K&K mini pickup set installed. This example has had two top cracks repaired and cleated, and the original Waverly tuners replaced with excellent Gotoh engraved open gear models. The finish has a few dings but overall is in good condition.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson SJ Round Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1957

Making their appearances in 1942, the Gibson SJ Round Shoulder Dreadnought, and the classic J-45 share much and their differences are largely cosmetic. Responding to the increasing demand for larger and louder guitars at the close of the Depression and start of WW2, the Gibson SJ Round Shoulder dreadnought – the Southern Jumbo – and the J-45 immediately met a positive reaction.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SJ Long Scale Square Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1968

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SJ Long Scale Square Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1968

The Gibson SJ Long Scale, Square Shoulder Dreadnought was a variation on the classic SJ model built for a short time around 1968 as Gibson competed with Martin. The classic SJ first appeared in 1942 as a replacement for the J-55, an ‘upscale’ version of the J-45. This was originally a ‘slope’ or round-shouldered dreadnought with a 24.75 inch scale length in either sunburst or natural finish. The natural-top SJN version was renamed to the ‘Country Western’ from 1955 to 1960, and then back to SJN. In 1962, it was renamed again to ‘SJN Country Western’.
