❌SOLD❌ Collings CJ45 T Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst


Instrument Categories: ,

Here we have a brand new and spectacular Collings CJ45 T Slope Shoulder Dreadnought in a sunburst lacquer finish!

Based on the classic J-45, the Collings CJ45 T Slope Shoulder Dreadnought takes that design to what’s probably its ultimate expression. Top quality woods and materials are used by extremely skilled workers, and the result is wrapped in one of the consistently best finishes available. Though this guitar is brand new and it has not had any chance to develop its voice, it has a full, rich sound with plenty of dynamics and projection.

The original Collings branded hard shell case is included.

Here’s the builder on the Collings CJ-45T:

“As with all of our Traditional Series guitars, when it came time to add a “T” designation to our slope-shoulder offerings, we didn’t simply tweak the original; the all-new Collings CJ-45 T is a fully re-imagined instrument that offers a distinct tonal variation when compared to our CJ and CJ-35 models.

Strongly vintage-inspired, the body construction has been completely re-engineered, including new bracing carves and patterns. When combined with our latest T-Series neck design and new CJ-45 neck profile, the result showcases a tone that is exceptionally dry and fundamental with the growl and thump sought after in the great slope-shoulder dreads of the Wartime era.”
